The Gunners are definitely looking to end their 8 year trophy-less streak. The entire club is determined to finally set aside the financial concerns that apparently were a priority during the past few years. Recently things changed drastically and signs point towards a bright future for the North London team.
According to ESPN, Wenger is not the only one determined to push for some significant transfers. The Frenchman is in perfect tune with Arsenal’s majority shareholder who supports the Gunners’ new found appetite for winning and especially for spending big as far as transfers go. Stan Kroenke was not one of the fan favorites over the past years because of his strict financial management techniques that kept the club back when it came to winning competitions.
It seems that the investment made to construct Emirates Stadium was the last big step before Arsenal started focusing on building a competitive team. The beginning of the 2013-2014 season looks very promising especially after the Gunners spent 43 million pounds on Ozil who became the most expensive transfer in the club’s history. The obvious improvement in Arsenal’s game that came with the German international’s move to London was also a factor that influenced the people responsible with managing the financial aspects of club. They are now determined to invest even more in quality players that will help a team that is already very strong.
Kroenke looked very pleased with the way Wenger’s transfer turned out and spoke about how important titles are when it comes to football. According to recent news both him and Ivan Gazidis who attended the annual general meeting that takes place at the Emirates Stadium will not be happy until some trophies are won. After the meeting the board also focused on subjects like the managerial team’s relationship with the fans and they closed by ensuring that for Gooners things are only going to get better with time and that other big transfers are going to occur in the near future.
