Wenger successor needs £250m to compete - Parlour

Wednesday, 9 May 2018


Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour says the club will need to make significant investments if they're to return to top level with a new manager.

Arsene Wenger is leaving club after 22 years as a manager, and Parlour believes his replacement must be provided with a £250m transfer kitty, in order to compete:

"If I was the new manager going into the club in the summer, the first thing I would say is: 'How much have I got to spend?'

"I'd say they would need £200m, but a little bit more if they want to compete – £250m.", ex-Arsenal star told talkSPORT.

"A big problem Arsenal are going to have this summer is attracting the big players, because they're not in the Champions League.

"The challenge for Arsenal's new manager is to get back into the top four, and to do that you've got to have investment – simple.

"The board have got to back him. They won't want to spend a lot of money in the summer, but that's what they're going to have to do if they want to compete in the top four.
