Unai Emery clearly believes the Gunners need a lot more – but he has a financial blow to contend with
January may have been and gone but that doesn’t stop the rumour mill from churning.
Deals have been done and Deadline Day is now just a distant memory but Arsenal’s business continues to get people talking.
Unai Emery is already thinking ahead as the Gunners plot a challenge next season.
The Arsenal manager is pleased with progress but that hasn’t stopped talk already starting regarding summer movement.
We’ve been keeping a close eye on things as the speculation keeps on coming.
Here are the stories to catch our eye….
No summer warchest
If Arsenal fans expected big cash to be spent at the end of the season they were fooling themselves.
Unai Emery will get only £45 million to play with in the summer, according to the Mail Online .
Selling could be an option to have more to spend – with Mesut Ozil’s £350,000 wages crippling the club.
Is three the magic number?
Reports suggest that the Arsenal boss already knows how many new faces are coming in next season.
Emery apparently only wants three summer signings – a far cry from the business done last year.
A new left-back is said to be top of his wish-list.
Rabiot at the ready?
Arsenal’s determination to land wantaway Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot is growing by the day.
Emery has told the club’s decision makers to ensure the 23-year-old knows he’s wanted.
The French international has been training with PSG’s U23s for the past month.
