Ivan Gazidis: Arsenal can sign world-class players this summer
Arsene Wenger will have a big transfer budget at Arsenal this summer, says the club's chief executive
Ivan Gazidis has reassured Arsenal fans that Arsene Wenger will have a significant transfer budget at his disposal this summer.
The north London side have already secured the services of midfielder Granit Xhaka in what is believed to be a deal worth around £30m.
Attentions have inevitably turned to the summer window after Arsenal failed to win a trophy last season and ended up 10 points behind champions Leicester in the table.
Wenger is believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signing as he bids to transform his side into genuine title contenders next season.
And Arsenal chief executive Gazidis has revealed that Wenger has a big transfer budget this summer for him to bring in the players he wants.
Speaking in an interview with The Telegraph, Gazidis said: “We are in a position that we were not in four or five years ago where we don’t have to sell our best players.
“We can go and sign world-class players if and when the manager identifies them.”
Arsenal ended up second in the Premier League last season after they leapfrogged local rivals Tottenham on the final day of the campaign.
