Arsenal have £30million to spend, says Fiszman

Arsenal would be willing to spend up to £30million before the end of the transfer window if manager Arsene Wenger found the right player, according to director Danny Fiszman.

Fiszman was responding to suggestions that the club's fans were uneasy with the Gunners' summer transfer dealings, which have seen the likes of Alexander Hleb, Mathieu Flamini and Gilberto leave the club and a distinct lack of big-name arrivals.

Samir Nasri, who already has two goals to his name, is the exception, arriving from Marseille for £12million, but there have been calls from supporters for more established stars to augment Wenger's youthful squad.

Fiszman, though, insists the board are willing to fund any targets the Frenchman identifies.

'There were great expectations and hopes that we would buy heavily this summer,' Fiszman said.

'It's not our decision who he (Wenger) spends money on, nor will it ever be our decision.

'If he said to us, 'I want this guy and he's £30million, can I buy him?', the answer is yes. Absolutely yes.

'We totally back him, it's his decision. If Arsene found the right player he would buy that player, but at the moment his hasn't.'

Fiszman also admitted the situation may not change between now and the end of the transfer window.

He admitted: 'There's a dual problem for him. If we buy star names, you are talking about relatively mature players who need to be integrated into the way Arsene plays - they don't know our style and it also impacts on the youngsters who have been brought through.'
