Arsenal chief Gazidis: Wenger not frightened of spending big

Arsenal chief Ivan Gazidis is confident Arsene Wenger isn't afraid of spending big on transfers. Gazidis believe Wenger DOES now want to spend big - and insists the veteran boss is the perfect man to do so.

He said: "It is no secret that we think he has done a fantastic job and we think we can give him the tools he needs.

"When we are thinking about trusting someone with the type of money we will have, we can think of nobody better than Arsene.

"He is not scared to spend money, but he has to believe he is getting a top-class player.

"The parameters in which he has to operate is to spend what the club can afford and my job is to make that as big as possible and Arsene's job is to think about which talent he wants to spend that on in the best way possible.

"If we only find one player that we like, we won't spend twice as much on him just so we can say we spent all of the money.

"That doesn't make any sense to me - the key will be to buy the players Arsene Wenger believes in."
