Wenger doesn't need to spend
Arsene Wenger has been forced to defend his transfer policy and claims spending huge amounts of money is not a sign of strength.
The Gunners faithful were left disappointed by Wenger's deadline day dealings as the north London club failed to strengthen, bringing in just three new faces over the whole of the summer.
While the arrivals of Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud have been well received the failure to bring in another striker and midfielder after Robin van Persie and Alex Song's departures have left the critics questioning Wenger.
The Frenchmen has now come out in support of his current squad, claiming he didn't need to spend a fortune to improve his current Arsenal squad.
"We have bought already - Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla, Olivier Giroud," he said in The Daily Star.
"But when you listen to people, you always have to buy more.
"Spending in itself is not a quality. Buying better players than we have - that is a quality."
The Gunners boss went on to say that once the likes of Tomas Rosicky, Jack Wilshere and Bacary Sagna return he believes he will have a squad capable of competing with the Premier League's top sides.
