Arsene Wenger seems content with the way his roster is set up despite failing to land a striker this summer.
In the aftermath of a transfer window that included almost minimal spending, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has taken to patting himself on the back for a successful summer.
In an interview with beIN Sports, Wenger declared he was “happy with the investments” he made during the summer transfer period this year and is pleased with his previous investments in the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud.
“It’s not the money that is missing at the moment, it’s not the desire of investment that is missing, it’s the number of players available when strengthening the big clubs,” Wenger said. “So am I happy with the investment I made? Yes, every time. I bought Sanchez, I bought Ozil, I bought Cech, I bought Gabriel last year, Debuchy.
“You have to invest when you find the players. The problem at the moment is to find the players that guarantee that you are absolutely a better team after.”
Arsenal spent an estimated £14.1 million on transfers this summer, £10 million of which was spent on goalkeeper Petr Cech.
The early results on Arsenal’s summer transfer moves have been mixed, with the Gunners taking just 7 out of the first 12 points on the table and recording just one offensive goal through the first four matches.
