Fans are desperate for Wenger to spend big this summer.
But he insists: "For years we were out of the race for the top-level transfers but we are coming back now because we are in a better financial situation and also because of Financial Fair Play. That will give everybody a bit more even ground.
"I still believe that, even if we are in a stronger financial position, all our values still have to be the same.
"We must rely on the quality of our work, on the style of our play and the fact we develop our own players. We will only use financial resources to bring in one or two players who will give us something more.
"It's very important that we keep to our strengths and what managed to get us through this period."
