Wenger to be handed transfer war chest
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will be handed a £35m transfer fund in January to help the Gunners continue their impressive start to the season, The Daily Mail reports.
The Gunners have lost just once this season and recovered from being 1-0 down to West Ham on Saturday to produce a comfortable 3-1 victory at Upton Park. Wenger’s side moved up to fifth in the table and seem to be dealing with the summer transfer departures of Robin van Persie and Alex Song. Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood insists there will be more money available for the Gunners boss, who is without a trophy since 2005, should Wenger want to spend it.
Wenger said: “If Arsene wants to use that money during the winter window then absolutely he will be able to do it. We rely on him to come up with the right people and there will be funds available for him. The financial results were good and we want to put that money to use if Arsene decides he wants more players.”
Summer signing Olivier Giroud opened his account for the Gunners after his £12m move from reigning French champions Montpellier. The striker has finally broke his duck and hopes that more goals will follow in an Arsenal shirt.
