Arsene Wenger will have a transfer kitty of £100 million should he stay on as Arsenal manager according to reports in today’s press.
- Wenger’s future will finally be decided in today’s board meeting
- Several players could leave the club in summer, including Ozil, Alexis and Oxlade-Chamberlain
- Wenger says he wants ‘one or two’ new players
The Daily Star have exclusively revealed that £100 million will be available to spend on new players should Wenger sign a new contract.
The rest of the article repeats information about today’s board meeting and the friction between Wenger and Gazidis.
There is some new information at the bottom about which players could leave the club this summer. Wojciech Szczesny, David Ospina, Carl Jenkinson, Mathieu Debuchy, Kieran Gibbs and Jack Wilshere are all expected to be made available for transfer.
The article also adds, almost as an afterthought, that Oxlade-Chamberlain is still likely to push for a move away despite the club’s desire to keep him.
Whatever the club’s transfer plans, this will be the first of many “warchest” stories to emerge.
I expect there’ll be a few more with some fanciful targets thrown in should Wenger extend his stay at the club.
