Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger again had to defend his transfer policy after their 0-0 draw with Leicester City.
Arsenal lacked cutting edge despite dominating possession withTheo Walcott and Mesut Ozil testing goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel but rarely threatening to break through.
Wenger said: “Why do you say I’m reluctant? If I buy you tomorrow for £45million I have spent £45million and I would have done well because I will have listened to you but spending the money in itself is not a quality. Spending the money buying a top player is different and we are ready to do it.
“I just said I’d spend £300million if I find the player and I had £300million. Do not forget we are a club who has 600 employees who we have to have a responsibility to as well. It’s a bit surprising you come out of games and don’t speak about football. You have to speak about money.
“You have to respect the players who played and the performance from both teams. If we find the players to strengthen our team then we are not reluctant to spend the money.
“They (the fans) are highly influenced by the media, that’s part of the process today. We try to make the right decisions, it’s as simple as that.
“We have a whole team working on the strengthening of the team. I’m not the only one. Unfortunately no-one speaks about the performance of Rob Holding. You should be happy, he is English and 20-years-old. I am sorry he didn’t cost £55million so he can’t be good.”
