Late last month, the news that all Arsenal fans have long been waiting for finally arrived – Arsene Wenger is finally prepared to spend.

Not only that, but he will also spend big. According to reports, the veteran Frenchman will at long last loosen the proverbial purse strings and splash out in the summer, with some suggesting he will have as much as £70 million to spend on players as he tries to bring to an end the Gunner’s eight-year wait for silverware.
