David Ornstein: The impact on Arsenal’s transfer budget if they lose to Chelsea

He has revealed that Champions League qualification could significantly increase Unai Emery’s current £40 million pre-sale budget.

The Gunners have two weeks to prepare for their trip to Baku where they will be attempting to claim their first piece of European silverware since 1994.

Champions League qualification to boost Arsenal’s transfer budget

As it stands, Emery will have around £40 million to spend on improving his team in the transfer window this summer.

Although, that would drastically change should the north London club manage to secure a spot in next season’s Champions League.
Here we go – it’s @BBCSport_David on #Arsenal. 🤣

“If they’re in the Europa League, their transfer budget will be £40m. If they qualify for the #UCL, it will be higher.”

Thoughts #Arsenal fans? 🤔

Ornstein reports that playing in Europe’s elite competition next term could increase their budget up to around £100 million.
I said I’d been told it could be up to £100m – would include salaries & require CL football, player sales + revenue lift from Adidas. Not privy to exact numbers so report what I’m told be people who are involved / close to situations. If no CL figure said to be ~£40m before sales

Having missed out on the top four, it is clear that new additions are needed this summer.

The BBC journalist claims that they are looking to sign a central defender, a box-to-box midfielder and a wide forward.
