£50m transfer plans not enough for Arsenal

The Arsenal board and Arsene Wenger may not like it but in the real world that is top level football today, players cost a ridiculous amount of money. So if the Gunners are really serious about challenging the likes of Chelsea and Man City for the Premier League as well as having a proper crack at the Champions League, then we have to get serious with the spending.

That is why the news reported by the Daily Mail today that Wenger is planning a £50 million summer transfer swoop for three players does not exactly get me jumping up and down. Man United paid more than that for one player last summer.
