Arsenal were very… Arsenal during the summer transfer window, they signed only free agent Sead Kolasinac and did spend £46 million to bring Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon, avoiding spending more, which is what practically every other big Premier League (and not only) club did.
Football is not just about spending money. There are some clubs paying £100m and £200m on players but I do not think that’s the philosophy. The important thing is to build a good team, a good block and get results from there
Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin told IBTimesUK, commenting on his club’s transfer policy.
Sometimes it takes time while other clubs use money. Each club has its own resources and its way of working. What matters is that on the pitch we give the maximum to prove that money is not everything
the Spaniard also said, believing (or just saying so) in Arsene Wenger’s “step by step” approach in strengthening the Gunners’ squad.
Arsenal have started the new Premier League season with two wins and two defeats in their first four matches, while on Thursday they are hosting Koln in their first game of the Europa League group stage.
