After hearing recent reports suggesting Arsene Wenger has a £35 million transfer kitty to spend this January, Frank McLintock dismisses any chance of Arsenal making big-money signings this winter.
Wenger managed to bring in Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla for an estimated combined total of £41 million, following the sales of Robin van Persie and Alex Song to Manchetster United and Barcelona respectively.
However, McLintock claims Wenger’s frugalness will stop the Frenchman from signing such high-profile players.
Speaking on ‘The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show’, the former Gunner said:
‘Things are looking pretty good at Arsenal.
‘There was talk in the papers over the last few days that Arsene Wenger has £35million to spend on a striker but I don’t think he’ll ever do that. He’ll have a heart attack before he ever does something like that!’
Will Wenger spend the reported £35 million kitty on just one player? I don’t think so. More importantly, he doesn’t really need too.
If he manages to bring in two players, perhaps a defender (full-back) and another striker, with this amount of cash then I’ll be pleased.
