Arsenal is expected to spend more money, according to a transfer report that predicts the club is about to undergo a transformation off the field.
In August 2018, Kroenke Sports Entertainment became the sole owner of the team. The following summer, Arsenal, a notoriously frugal club, spent £72 million for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe in an attempt to reclaim the Champions League.
KSE’s buying spree has continued, with the owners apparently paying for Thomas Partey’s £45 million release clause in one go and authorizing a £130 million summer splurge to rebuild Arsenal’s team with young players. It looks like the trend will continue, as The Athletic reports that the Emirates have a new transfer strategy.
Arsenal reportedly wants to make “one or two major signings” per transfer window, signaling a shift away from the club’s austere days.
