Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are reacting to exciting comments made by a former star, who suggests Arsene Wenger will splash the cash this summer.
Having already spent £30m to secure Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach, Metro quotes John Hartson as declaring that the Gunners will spend a further £90m this summer- taking their spending to the £120m mark.
‘They’ve just gone out and bought a good player in Xhaka. They needed a holding central midfielder and they’ve paid around £30m for him, which is the type of money the Arsenal fans want to see being spent on the best players.’
‘I think Arsene Wenger will spend a lot of money this summer. I expect him to spend between £100m and £120m and I think they’ll have a real challenge next season. He’s been holding that money back slightly and been a bit cautious to go and spend it.’
‘But after finishing second behind Leicester, the fans will want the title next season and I think he’ll bring in some seriously good players this summer.’
The Gunners have been linked with a wealth of top names this window and our landlord believes they can complete properly if they land a top-class centre-back and a quality striker.
