Arsene Wenger believes Anthony Martial's big-money move to Manchester United yesterday is proof that there are no available players that could improve the big clubs.
But the Gunners boss believes the Red Devils' £36 million move for an unproven 19-year-old highlights the problem that faces big clubs at the minute.

As per the Evening Standard, the French boss told beIN Sports: “What happened last night with Monaco, who sold Martial to Manchester United for 80million Euros, I’ve heard.
“Martial scored 11 goals in the French championship - that sums it up well. That means it’s not the money that’s missing at the moment, it’s not the desire of investment that is missing, it’s the number of players available who can strengthen the big clubs.
“The problem at the moment is finding the players that guarantees you are a better team after, and that example last night shows you very well.
"Martial is a huge talent - he’s 19-years-old. The investment is absolutely huge as well. It shows you that there’s not many players in the world who can strengthen these teams."
Arsenal have been crying out for a striker since the season began, with Olivier Giroud failing to find the back of the net on a regular occasion.
Reports from the Mirror claim Arsenal turned down the chance to sign Cavani due to his £50m price-tag at the age of 28.
But with some of the eye-watering deals that have gone through this summer would £50m be too much for a player who has scored 210 goals in 381 career games.
Arsenal fans, will Arsene Wenger's reluctance to pay out big fees cost the club success or are you happy to see him saving money? Have your say below!
