Arsenal’s summer transfer budget

Whoever succeeds Arsene Wenger at Arsenal will only have a limited budget for their summer recruitments.

That’s according to the Daily Mail on Tuesday, as it’s revealed Arsenal only have 50 million pounds to spend in the off-season.

The Gunners financial constraints are due to heavy investment in recent seasons. Arsenal fans are told:

Arsenal are seeking a strict disciplinarian to shake the club out of its malaise as it emerged that the new manager will have as little as £50million to spend on transfers this summer. 

Arsenal chiefs want to appoint a hardline boss as they look to extract every ounce of potential from their existing squad.

Of course, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have joined Arsenal in big deals recently. While Mesut Ozil recently signed an expensive new contract with the Gunners.

The Daily Mail go on to report that Arsenal’s primary goal in the summer is to sign a new centre-half.

Laurent Koscielny is known to suffer from chronic Achilles problems, while Shkodran Mustafi has come under repeated criticism this season for a series of mistakes throughout the campaign.

Two players are named as targets: Mainz’s Abdou Diallo and Wolfsburg’s Ohis Felix Uduokhai.
