Arsenal chairman Hill-Wood doesn’t expect Wenger to spend in January

Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood doesn't expect manager Arsene Wenger to buy in January.

Wenger has plenty of money to spend on new players but believes his current crop of youngsters can last the course in the title race.

Hill-Wood told the Daily Star: “We have got a lot of money available to spend – money’s not the restriction.

“I spoke to Arsene about this a few days ago and he said he wasn’t prepared to go out and buy a player who is not better than the ones we have got. You try and find a world-class striker like Robin van Persie, regardless of how much money you have got.”
