Arsenal manager promises big signings before the transfer window closes.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that despite the lack of significant transfer activity at Emirates Stadium so far this summer, the Gunners are looking to improve the squad – and are not afraid to spend big.
The north London side have only signed young French forward Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer despite being linked with a plethora of players, and the fans appear to be growing quite understandably restless.

“It’s not a question of spending the money, it’s a question of finding the right players. As I told you, you are well informed, you certainly heard that we are not scared to spend money. But we want the right players.”
Arsenal have reportedly failed with bids for Gonzalo Higuain, Luis Suarez and Luiz Gustavo this summer.
