Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has reassured fans that there is money to spend this summer, but insists that the club will live within its means.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Gazidis said, “We do have money we can spend. We want to be winners. We want to be trophy winners.
“There’s a relentless focus on doing things we need to do to achieve that, but we also have to do them within the bounds of a sensible football club”.
Gazidis also refused to be drawn the club’s intentions in the transfer market, saying that was the job of Arsene Wenger.
“We don’t conduct our business in public. I don’t intend to put my voice into the mix. Arsene has been very clear and explicit on all of those subjects. I’ll leave the voice of Arsenal to be his.”
While doubts still remain over the futures of Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas, Charlton youngster Carl Jenkinson has been the only official signing of the summer so far. Ivory Coast striker Gervinho is expected to join today however, and Arsenal are reportedly close to a deal for Costa Rican youngster Joel Campbell.
