Report: Arsenal owners still planning huge transfer overhaul with £250m prepared to be spent
Arsenal might fail to qualify for the Champions League this season in the end, but the Gunners’ board are still planning a huge £250m overhaul.
Mikel Arteta was backed in the summer last year as well. The Spaniard moved to sign players like Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, and Martin Odegaard. All three, along with the other signings that summer, have done well this season and will be key going forward.
Of course, if Arsenal do miss out on the top four, then it’s a bitter blow to their cause. However, according to The Independent’s Miguel Delaney, missing out does not mean the club won’t be spending. In fact, it’s claimed in the latest newsletter from Delaney that the Gunners board will even spend up to £250m this summer.
The thought behind that is the extra place for Champions League football being available in 2024. With that, the Kroenke’s feel that spending big now will benefit the club long-term, and give them the best chance possible of snatching one of those five places.
Arsenal are being linked with players already. Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City has been mentioned more than once.
TBR’s View: £250m Spending Should Excite Arsenal Fans
Wow. This would ensure Arsenal are in for a big old summer in the window and means Gunners fans can become excited about the prospect of top new players arriving.
£250m is a big old chunk of change to spend for any club. For Arsenal, they obviously feel it’s worth it to back Mikel Arteta as best they can. That sort of figure means the club can go out and get players with the right quality, attitude, and experience to bring success to the club.
Arsenal can, of course, still make the top four this weekend. But regardless of that, Gunners fans will be happy to see the plan in place here.
