Wenger can spend big again in January

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has the resources to make another big splash in the transfer market when the window reopens in January, the Mail Online understands.

The Gunners smashed their transfer record on deadline day three weeks ago with the £42.4million perchance of Germany international Mesut Ozil, but failed to bring in an established striker.

The North London club made two bids for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, but both were rejected leaving Wenger with very few options upfront.

Olivier Giroud, who has scored four goals in five league games this season, is the clubs only fit, established out and out striker.

Theo Walcott has often expressed a desire to be deployed through the middle, but he was withdrawn from the match-day squad before kick-off against Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium yesterday with an abdominal injury.

The 3-1 home win sent Wenger’s men to the top of the league, with goals coming from midfielder Aaron Ramsey and defenders Per Mertesacker and Bacaray Sagna.

The thirteen time English champions are now priced at 6/1 to lift the Premier League trophy at the end of the season.
