Stan Kroenke is reportedly set to allow Arsene Wenger to splash the cash this summer after a mega-splurge at his NBA club.
- Kroenke spends $90m on three-year deal for NBA All-Star
- Spending sparks rumours that same will happen at Arsenal
- American set to give Wenger go-ahead on mega-splurge
Kroenke recently brought Atlanta Hawks All-Star, Paul Millsap, to his NBA side, Denver Nuggets.
While the transfer itself was free, the three-year agreement itself will cost the American sportsclub owner $90m.
The Nuggets have struggled in recent years and have been crying out for a big signing, and it appears that, this time, Kroenke has delivered.
Sound like another sports team you know?
According to football.london, this has encouraged Kroenke, who also owns MLS side Colorado Rapids and NHL team Colorado Avalanche, to splash the cash at Arsenal.
The Gunners are set to complete a deal for Alexandre Lacazette this week thought to be in the region of £52m including add-ons, and Riyad Mahrez is said to be signing very soon for an alleged £35m.
Apparently, however, this isn’t it, and Wenger is also going to try and sign his other rumoued targets, Monaco’s Thomas Lemar and Kylian Mbappe, the latter of which would set the club back over £125m.
Well Stan, if you insists…
