Arsenal board of directors are reportedly set to make a surprising move to reinforce the team next season by releasing a whopping £200m to the incoming manager so as buy any player whom he believes would add more quality and depth to the present crop of players in the next season.
Arsenal, under Arsene Wenger, are known to spend less in any transfer period as the Frenchman solely rely on the team’s academy products but that policy is reportedly set to end when the 68-year-old manager depart the Emirates stadium by the close of the season.
According to the Star, the Gunners are willing to support Wenger’s successor in his decision to make huge changes to the present squad by giving him £200m so as to buy some world-class players in the summer as they hope to compete with other top European clubs for trophies.
There have been rumours in some quarters that the Gunners are eyeing Carlo Ancelotti as the ideal replacement for the Frenchman while some are news are reporting that former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has dropped Chelsea’s proposed job after making a contact with Arsenal hierarchy over the possibility of switching to the Emirates stadium next season.
With the £200m, whoever becomes the next Arsenal manager won’t have any reason to complain about the fund in his mission to bring back the Gunners glory days.
Leicester City’s midfielder Wilfred Ndidi; Manchester United strikers Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford; USA international Christian Pulisic; and Soyunco among others are the players who are heavily linked with a move to the Emirates stadium in the summer.
