Wenger: ‘Very active’ Arsenal are still able to ‘spend big’

Arsene Wenger: Looking for quality, not quantity this summer

Arsene Wenger: Tough decisions ahead of Liverpool game

Arsene Wenger has insisted Arsenal are working hard in the transfer market – but will only splash the cash if the right player is available.

The Gunners have already dished out at least £30million to sign Swiss international midfielder Granit Xhaka this summer, but Wenger said the resources are there for Arsenal to add more significant quality before the transfer window closes.

“We are very active and if we find the right candidates, we will spend the big money,” Wenger said. “We have already spent big and, until now, nobody has made a bigger transfer than we have in the country.

“Even if Pogba might fly from Italy to England, I don’t know, but overall we have made a big investment already and we are active.

“I believe we are active, very are active every day, and it’s not over. Today we are in July and the transfer market finishes on August 31.

“A lot happens many times in the last week so it’s a long time to go but we are active, we are working.”

Arsenal look increasingly likely to miss on Napoli’s record-breaking striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is close to signing for Juventus in a reported £78.5million deal, but have been strongly linked with a big-money move for Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez.

    Have we heard this before? What happened then? Bugger all! Same this time round. The point is if Wenger was merely looking for a replacement for super Welbeck, then he could have taken a chance on Jannsen who signed for the Spuds for less than 20M. As it stands there may be some activity near the end of the window, when teams need to balance their books etc… I do not expect any major signings though.
