Wenger To Spend This Summer

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that he will spend big in the transfer market this summer.

The Gunners have come under criticism for not bringing in enough players in recent years - while at the same time letting key players go.

Wenger says that with no transfer sagas hanging over them this season, he aims to spend time in the market buying instead of selling.

"Let's finish well and then we'll give ourselves a good ­potential chance to win the championship next season by doing well in the ­transfer market," the Arsenal boss told reporters.

"Last summer and the year before were very ­difficult; last year we had the Robin van Persie case and before that it was Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri. We started pre-season, on camps, with every time a player being half-in or half-out and that is not the best way mentally to prepare."

Wenger also believes that the managerial changes could provide a good opportunity for them to jump over some rivals.

"You can have a little advantage on some teams. If (Jose) Mourinho comes back it will not be a totally new experience but, yes, if (Manuel) Pellegrini comes it can be difficult in a new country," he continued. "It's very difficult to predict how it will work."
