Arsene Wenger Will Receive Huge Financial Backing at Arsenal in the Summer

According to French sports newspaper L’Équipe, (via Sport Witness), not only is Arsène Wenger set to remain as Arsenal boss, the Frenchman is set for an ‘unprecedented recruitment effort’ in the next summer transfer window.

Reports in France suggest that Wenger is set to extend his 21 year stay at Arsenal and he will be given financial backing by the board in the summer in order to compete at the top level.

Wenger has received increased pressure from his own fans as Arsenal have suffered a massive dip in form in recent weeks, having lost four out of their last five Premier League matches, losing to the likes of Watford and West Brom in the process.

Despite this, the Frenchman is determined to prove his doubters wrong and he’s likely to stay at the Emirates for a least one more season and it’s been reported in France that Wenger will be given full support to attract the best players to the club.

L’Équipe have rubbished claims that Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has already signed an agreement to join Spanish club Atlético Madrid in the summer, leaving the door for Arsenal to make a move.

Lacazette appeared to be on Arsenal’s radar last summer but the Londoners were unsuccessful in their bid to sign the forward. The French forward has been in blistering form this season as he has notched up 28 goals in all competitions, helping his side to the Europa League quarter-finals.

The report claims that Arsenal will need to splash out £50 million to secure the services of the Lyon’s main man but the board will be willing to pay the money to help Arsenal become one of Europe’s best teams once again.
