Arsenal hand Wenger £100M summer warchest

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to be handed the greatest summer transfer budget in the club's history.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to be handed the greatest summer transfer budget in the club's history.

The Telegraph says club owner Stan Kroenke remains steadfast in his belief that Wenger is the man to lead Arsenal into a new era of success and is ready to entrust his manager with the largest transfer budget in the club’s history.

Wenger’s position has been the subject of renewed debate after a run of two points in three games has allowed Everton back into the race for a top-four finish but, ahead of Sunday’s pivotal trip to Goodison Park, Kroenke’s analysis of Arsenal is utterly unmoved.

There will be no pressure from Kroenke to overhaul a young squad that was top until February and is in the FA Cup semi-finals, but he will make transfer funds of around £100 million available for key signings, notably a striker and holding midfielder. Kroenke also remains relaxed about Wenger’s own future and, although some contingency thinking has been done, every plan is being made on the basis that Wenger will extend a contract that expires at the end of the season.
