Wenger prepared to shell out Arsenal's funds to end trophy drought
After a long period of reluctance over investing Arsenal's money for buying new players, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly ready to spend the club's money to draw in stars to end an eight-year trophy drought for the team
The Gunners boss has been notoriously reluctant to splash the cash despite the club's strong finances, The Sun reports.
However, Arsenal's vice chairman David Dein said that Wenger is aware of the fact that it is necessary to spend cash to strengthen the team, adding that the club is ready to splash its cash to bring in the right talent for enabling a recovery from the eight-year trophy drought for the team.
Praising Wenger as the best football manager in the world, Dein said that the Frenchman is backed by his coaching career of 30 years, adding that he knows what he wants.
Dein also believes that Wenger is the only man to lead Arsenal to its peak with 17 years of securing champions league football at the club.
Arsenal won the last silverware in the 2005 Football Association Challenge (FA) for beating Manchester United on penalties.
However, unlike both the Manchester teams and Chelsea, Arsenal has not broken the club bank previously for bringing in young talents, the report added. (ANI)
