Arsenal set for £50m transfer boost with Baku victory

Arsenal will receive a huge transfer boost if they win the Europa League final.

The Gunners will take on Premier League rivals Chelsea in Baku on May 29.

It is the north Londonders final chance to qualify for the Champions League.

An end to the two-year hiatus from Europe's premier competition will earn Arsenal £38.25m before the competition starts, plus £13.24m as a qualifying bonus.

This would leave manager Unai Emery just over £50m for his summer spending, adding to the £70m he's already been guaranteed by the Arsenal board.
