Wenger added that in recent years there has been a trend for the club’s big attacking players to move on but that’s changed with the signings of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, who joined last summer from Real Madrid and this summer from Barcelona respectively, the former for a club record fee.
“Three, four, five years ago we lost a big player every year,” Wenger said. “In the last two years we’ve added players like Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez. I have more attacking options than I’ve had for a long time.”
