Arsene Wenger in Thursday’s press conference revealed he is not scared of signing players and he also revealed he goes for quality and not quantity.
The boss was heavily criticised for not signing in players in the summer to fill in key position as many believed he would have signed a defensive midfielder and also a clinical finisher to bolster the squad.
He revealed he was only going to sign exceptional players and Arsenal are not scared to spend big in the transfer market.
Speaking to reporters Wenger said: ‘We are not scared to spend money. I know I have that reputation, but success is talent and cohesion.’
He added: ‘We are back in contention for the championship this year and we will fight (for the title), our numbers show it.
‘We have taken more points since January than anyone. The trend is right and shows consistency.’
Hopefully this means Wenger will be able to spend big in the winter transfer window and could finally secure the signing of Frenchman Karim Benzema who has been scoring goals all through this season.
