Arsenal will spend another £120m this summer, claims club legend
Arsenal could be set to spend big this summer, says John Hartson
John Hartson believes that Arsenal are on course to spend as much as £120m in the summer transfer window.
The north London side have already moved quickly to secure the signature of Granit Xhaka as Arsene Wenger moved to bolster his midfield options at Emirates Stadium.
Much has been made of Arsenal’s lack of activity in recent transfer windows and Arsenal boss Wenger has come in for plenty of criticism since his side ended last season without a trophy and 10 points behind champions Leicester.
Arsenal have inevitably been linked with a host of new players in recent weeks as the summer transfer window gets into full swing.
And former Gunner Hartson is tipping Wenger to take the shackles off and splash the cash this year.
Hartson is quoted as saying by Metro: “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.”
Arsenal ended the season without a trophy but finished above local rivals Tottenham after leapfrogging them on the final day of the campaign.
