Wenger to splash the cash in January

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been given cash to splash on new players in the January transfer window, according to Arsenal Supporters' Trust.

Ahead of the season Premier League Tips suggested that Arsenal could fight for the title, but now it seems they will be lucky to finish in the top 4.

Wenger has now been told that he has "considerable resources" to spend in the January transfer window.

"There is plenty of money there," said Trust spokesman Tim Payton. "That was the message that Ivan and his finance director were giving this evening."

The Gunners crashed out of the Captial One Cup on Tuesday against Bradford and Arsenal supporters are now demanding that Wenger spend in January.

The Arsenal Supporters' Trust met with Arsenal chief executive Ian Gazidis on Wednesday evening.

"He stayed for over two hours," said Payton. "He apologised for the result [at Bradford] and said it was not good enough and had to be better.

"The Arsenal fans were dissatisfied with the strength of the squad and particularly don't understand whether there were resources to be used.

"I specifically raised this with the finance director and his colleague and they were in no doubt there is considerable resources available to the manager ready to spend when he has identified the players he wants to sign.

"It's crystal clear that Arsenal fans need to wait until January for Arsene Wenger to use the cheque book he has been given well."

The Supports' Trust also commented on Wenger's future at the Emirates Stadium.

"Lots of people have asked me whether Arsene Wenger should go," added Payton.

"He certainly needs to change and improve, spend the money he's got, strengthen the set-up around him and the results will be the judge."
