Arsenal fans have urged Gunners boss Arsene Wenger to spend some cash, after it was revealed that the club has cash resources of £123million.

Half yearly figures up until November showed a profit of £17.8.Million, largely generated by player sales - including the £24million transfer of Robin van Persie to Manchester United.

An Arsenal Supporters' Trust spokesman outlined the grievances of the fans.

He said: "Arsenal once again made a profit from the sale of their best players.

"Fans have contributed to this financial health by paying some of the world's highest ticket prices.

"AST [Arsenal Supporters' Trust] want to see this money used for better investment in the team.'

But Gunners Chairman Peter Hill-Wood responded to the claims, insisting it's the intention of the club to challenge for honours, and to keep the best players at the Emirates Stadium.

Mr Hill-Wood said: "Our intention is to keep our best players."

Arsenal have been linked with many players, and the latest name on Arsene Wenger's shortlist is reportedly £7.5million Eintracht Frankfurt star Sebastian Rode. According to The Sun, the Gunners are thought to be considering a summer move for the Germany under-21 international.

Rode is considered to be one of the Bundesliga's hottest young prospects. He primarily operates as a defensive midfielder, but the report claims Arsenal face a battle with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund to land the midfielder. 

With only 16 months left on his contract he has so far refused to sign a new deal, suggesting he could be open to a Premier League move. Eintracht could cash in at the end of the season or risk losing Rode for nothing when his contract expires.

Snatching Rode from under the noses of these two German giants would be a big boost to the quality of Arsene Wenger's squad.

Barcelona star David Villa could also be on Arsene Wenger's radar again this summer too, as the Catalan Club admitted they would not keep the 31-year old Spain International against his wishes.
