Arsene Wenger scared of rivals’ spending spree

  • Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says “it’s quite scary” to look at the spending of Premier League top clubs this summer.

    Wenger who is yet to sign a major signing since signing Granit Xhaka from German club Borussia Monchengladbach and has faced a lot of criticism for not signing any attacking talent going into the new season.

    Rivals Manchester United are going for their biggest spending spree so has Manchester City who are closing in on Stones. Liverpool have also done good business as they signed Sadio Mane and Wijnaldum so far.

    Arsene Wenger who is yet to sign a much-needed striker this summer as he eyes to win Premier League after finishing second last season, feels that the amount of money being spent will make a huge impact in the upcoming season.

    “It’s a big ask, because when you look at the Premier League, every club is hugely ambitious,” Wenger said.

    “You look at the cheques that everybody signs and it’s quite scary. That’s what the Premier League is about at the moment.”

    Asked if another top-four finish is enough, Wenger said: “It’s never enough. I personally believe that no matter what you do, it’s never enough.

    “You have to give absolutely everything to take the best out of the team. I believe that we know what we have to do, because we were second last year, we had 18 teams behind us.”

    However, Wenger iterates his desire to sign an offensive and attacking talent in the current transfer window and after an injury to Per Mertesacker, the Frenchman also believes he should be adding more experience into their defense.

    “We were a bit short on goals scored [last season], so we will try certainly to strengthen a little bit in that department,” Wenger said. “Defensively we need to bring some more experience to our squad. I think in the middle of the park we have enough players.”
