Arsenal are said to release £200m to the incoming manager so as to boost his plans for the upcoming transfer window but that is will not be enough to get more quality players who would help the club to their first Premier League trophy in 14 years, according to former Arsenal player Ray Parlour.
Despite the acquisition of Mustafi, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the last summer and winter transfer window respectively, the Gunners are unable to secure a top-four finish by the end of the season as they are currently in the seventh position, 14 points behind Tottenham who are in the fourth position.
According to Ray Parlour on talk-sport, the new Arsenal manager will need nothing less than a £250m war chest from the club’s board of directors if he wants to do well with the Emirates outfits next season.
He further suggested that the Gunners will need to do a lot to convince established players to joining the team due to their inability to qualify for next season’s Champions League competition. He believes world-class players always prefer to participate in European competitions and with Arsenal’s failure to win this season Europa League, they are ultimately ruled out of the competition next season.
“A big problem Arsenal are going to have this summer is attracting the big players, because they’re not in the Champions League.” he Said.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is set to leave the Emirates by the close of the season and according to numerous reports, Juventus manager Maximiliano Allegri might be his replacement in the summer.
