Ex-Arsenal midfielder Jensen unsurprised Wenger did not splash out in January

Arsenal hero John Jensen isn't surprised manager Arsene Wenger didn't splash out last month.

Jensen says he would have been surprised if Wenger had signed Schalke's Julian Draxler in the January window.

He told the Mirror: "Arsene has always been a manager who watches the bottom line.

"He spent a lot of money in the summer bringing in Ozil, I would be surprised if he spent big again with £37 million for Draxler.

"Arsene's philosophy is always to sell on players for big money and to bring through other players he can develop; though bringing back Flamini was a good move. He might not play every game, but he's someone with experience who the manager knows well."
