Dixon expects Arsenal boss Wenger to spend this summer

Lee Dixon is confident Arsene Wenger will spend in the summer market on his Arsenal squad.

"Everyone has got their opinion and some have been critical but Arsène Wenger is still Mr Arsenal, as far as I'm concerned," former Gunners fullback Dixon told Arsenal.com.

"He can do little wrong for me, I still rate him hugely as a manager and what he's done for this football club has been phenomenal.

"It was disappointing to end the season with no silverware but I don't think the team needs a huge amount of surgery, it just needs strengthening in certain areas. We can all have our opinion where that is but I'm not the Arsenal manager and I'm certainly not one to criticise Arsène Wenger in who he buys and who he sells.

"Some of the fans have got frustrated and he will be too, but with a couple of signings I don't think we'll be far off next year.

"I expect the manager to spend, without doubt. He will get money and they are quite rightly being cagey about how much, because he's not a fool and doesn't want to put the price up on his transfer targets. I'm sure he'll go out with a determined mind to try and strengthen in certain areas."
