Arsenal won't spend big despite sponsor deal

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger informed gathered journalists that the Gunners would not be making any rash decisions when it comes to purchasing players this coming January when the football transfer window reopens. The Gunners put pen to paper on a 150m GBP sponsorship deal with Emirates Airlines.

Arsenal fans are becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of silverware delivered by Wenger over the past seven years, and many want to see their legendary French manager splash the cash and bring in new faces after two summers of discontent as star players Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie and Samir Nasri quit the club for pastures new.

With Arsenal set to spend big in the next few months, with the likes of Mesut Ozil linked with a transfer, Arsene Wenger is slowly coming under pressure for a lack of football transfers. Arsene Wenger admitted that his goal still remains to secure the best players in Europe.

"I don't know how active we will be in January," said Wenger. "We have a good squad and these players have a fantastic attitude, they deserve success and we will have success. We will be in the market and if we can find a real top, top player, we will do it. There is no fixed number (of players to sign). We just look at quality.

"If we get that amount of money from a sponsor, it is because they feel we do things in the right way and with the right values and they reward that. After that, it is up to us to spend the money in the right way.
