Arsenal chairman Keswick: We're ready to shake up transfer market

Arsenal chairman Sir Chips Keswick says they're ready to spend big in the summer market. Keswick insists the board will continue to give their full support to manager Arsene Wenger in the summer transfer market on the back of a robust set of financial results, with healthy cash reserves of some £120.6million.

He said: "Whilst youth development continues to be an important focus, we fully recognise the importance of getting the balance right between youth and experience.

"As you well know, we signed Mesut Ozil for a club record transfer fee in the summer and, in addition, the signing of Mathieu Flamini has proved to be an astute acquisition.

"We will continue to work hard to keep the players Arsene believes can take us forwards.

"We will also continue to support the manager in the transfer market when he identifies players he believes can further strengthen the squad."
