Arsene Wenger Denies Financial Claim By Club Director.

According to Arsene Wenger, Arsenal director Lord Harris went a bit overboard with his claim that the club could sign any player they want to.

Harris said earlier that Arsene Wenger has the necessary resources needed in breaking the club's transfer record since there is enough money available but the Frenchman has come out to term that as 'untrue'.

Speaking to reporters ahead of his sides's Emirates Cup clash with Olympique Lyon, the 65-year-old said:

“He has gone a bit overboard because that is not true. We are in a situation where we are working hard where if an opportunity comes up we can do something but we are not in need.

"We are in a strong position with a strong squad I am happy with. We have built up something special last season, that is a good team dynamic and confidence level.”

Asked whether he would be bringing in a new striker as reported, Wenger said that he does not want to make a promise regarding such a move. He however stated that the club will strengthen the squad if they find the right player.

He further went on to declare that the fact that two marquee signings were made in the last two seasons does not mean that the club are willing to spend funds unnecessarily. He concluded by saying that cash will be splashed only on necessary signings.
