Arsenal board fume over lack of ambition claims

"Lukas Podolski has 100 caps for Germany and Olivier Giroud was the top scorer in France," one source told the Telegraph. "We have great young players coming through and we improved to finish third last year. What money we have is available to spend. We are doing everything we can to succeed."
