Arsene Wenger has once again insisted that he will not splash the cash just for the sake of it this summer as he looks to transform Arsenal into title contenders next season.

The Gunners have inevitably been linked with a host of names in recent weeks as the summer transfer window approaches and Wenger starts to think about bolstering his squad ahead of next season.

The north London side have been linked with the likes of Paulo Dybala and Karim Benzema in recent days.

However, Wenger has stressed that the internal cohesion between his players is just as important as signing the right names this summer.

Speaking at a news conference last week, Wenger said: “You can always look at possible areas where you can strengthen but sometimes in your own team the cohesion is important as well. And that is linked to the type of players that play together.

“Sometimes it’s less risky [to bring players in] but where the heart of the team is, the fact they play together for a long time is very important as well.

“[Chelsea] have a stable defence that has played together for two or three years now. And they conceded fewer goals than the other teams.”

Wenger’s Arsenal side travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners are currently third in the Premier League table and two points ahead of the Red Devils.
