Frank McLintock has told Arsenal fans to forget about any big-money singings arriving at the Emirates in the transfer window.
Reports have emerged from the Gunners that Arsene Wenger has a £35million transfer kitty to spend in January on a star striker.
But former Highbury favourite McLintock claims Wenger’s prudence means he won’t be splashing out on just one player.
“Things are looking pretty good at Arsenal,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “There was talk in the papers over the last few days that Arsene Wenger has £35million to spend on a striker but I don’t think he’ll ever do that. He’ll have a heart attack before he ever does something like that!“
But the McLintock did go on to say that, even if the club don’t land a big-name signing, honours could be coming Arsenal’s way at the end of the season.
“I like the look of what I’ve seen already apart from the Chelsea game,” he said. “Most of the performances have been very good.
"The defence has tightened up, there seems a little bit more team-work, Luka Podolski and Santo Cazorla have been outstanding and Olivier Giroud looks a hard working player.”
