Arsenal CEO Vinai Venkatesham is the latest to defend the club’s decision not to buy anybody in the January transfer window.
With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang allowed to leave the club, the decision means that the Gunners are light in attack for the rest of the season, with only two recognised strikers, Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah who have scored just three Premier League goals between them this season.
Despite that, Venkatesham told a fans forum that the management team are happy with the options available to them, and that there was no point in spending money just for the sake of it.
He also insists that there will be new arrivals in the summer, but they have to be a right fit for the club.
It was also by the CEO announced that the Emirates stadium will be getting a face lift this summer, because it is showing signs of wear and tear.
