Petr Cech comments on Arsenal’s summer transfer policy

Petr Cech has his say on Arsenal's summer transfer policy under Arsene Wenger

Petr Cech has backed Arsene Wenger to make the right transfer decisions for Arsenal in the summer window.

The north London side have been linked with a host of big-name players in recent weeks but have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka, defender Rob Holding and striker Takuma Asano.

Wenger is thought to be on the lookout for a new striker as he bids to prepare his squad for the new Premier League season.

The Gunners came in for plenty of criticism last term after failing to sustain a Premier League title challenge as they ended up 10 points behind champions Leicester City and without a trophy.

However, while Cech feels that money must be spent this summer, the goalkeeper stressed that it is only worth buying players who will actually improve the squad.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Cech said: “I think you need to buy players you need.

“You need to buy players that will improve the team and not to buy players just for buying. That’s the philosophy of the club.”
