Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists that the Gunners are willing to spend big money if they can find the right striker.
The Gunners are understood to be exploring a number of options over a new centre-forward, with discussions continuing over the possible signing of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon, according to SkySports.
The 66-year-old manager insists that money has never been the problem when it comes to buying a player, however, he believes that finding the right player to improve the squad is a challenge.
‘It’s not the prices, it’s the players. The money is never a problem if you have to pay what is requested,’ Wenger said.
‘The price of a player is down to four ingredients; one is the talent, two is his age, three is how much you expect him to improve your team, and four is his resale value.’
Wenger says his only focus at the moment are getting his players ready for the 2016-17 season.
‘At the moment I’m focused on the players we have. Today we didn’t have Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, and Alexis Sanchez, who will play [against Gothenburg] on Sunday. We still have Mesut Ozil at home, and Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny too,’ he added.
‘We also have young players who came on and did well. We do not have to panic but we are on alert in the transfer market so that we can make the right move when the opportunity comes up.’
