Arsenal CEO👔 Ivan Gazidis has conceded that despite the restraint Arsenal🔫 has exercised in the transfer market for quite a few years, they are not in a position to outgun rivals financially🙆. Gazidis said🔈, "We can't afford to outgun competitors that have far more money. We have to be very careful, very selective." Arsenal have only made one major signing✍ this summer - the capture of Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach for £35m💵. But they saw a similar offer for Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette rejected❌.
This comes after it was confirmed that defender Per Mertesacker was injured🚑, sidelining him for several months. This leaves Wenger in a spot of bother😟. He needs a defender and might be tempted to go for cheap alternatives.
