Arsenal’s chairman Peter Hill-Wood has admitted that there’s a possibility for the Gunners not to catch a Champions League spot at the end of the season and that the board is preparing financially for that exact possibility.
“We are hanging on in there, no more,” he told the Daily Star of the club’s current position.
“From a financial point of view, not qualifying for the Champions League is quite a blow.
“We have been planning for not qualifying every year, so it’s not a disaster, but it would be nice if we could.”
The Gunners aren’t looking grate at the moment and even though they have a bucket-load of injuries Wenger doesn’t seem to keen to make any decisive transfers and would rather bring players in on loan.
Even though they were expected to bring a host of top players at the club being linked with rising stars like Gotze, Hazard, M’Villa or with established top players like Podolski, a move is yet to be done and the transfer window is once again getting closer and closer to the finish line leaving Wenger with no choice but to do the most from what he’s got at the moment and pull out a top 4 finish.
