Arsenal supporters have been promised that the acquisition of Gervinho won't be the last new face to come through the door at The Emirates Stadium this summer, with chief executive Ivan Gazidis claiming the club have substantial funds to spend during the transfer window.
The signing of the Ivory Coast international represents The Gunners' second transfer dealing of the summer, following the signing of Carl Jenkinson from Charlton Athletic.
But any Arsenal fans worried that the club's activity in the window is over have been told the club are just getting started.
“We still will be active in this window,” said Gazidis. “We understand where the weaknesses have been. We’re certainly not sitting there saying, ‘let’s hold back on our resources’. We’ve got a substantial amount of money that we can invest.”
“If we found an established world-class player and we thought the economics made sense and he would add to what we could do on the pitch then there’s no philosophical objection to that.
“Arsène has no point of principle to show the world that he can build his own team of young players. That’s just not the way it is. But if you look at the best players that we have on our team, they were not necessarily superstar players when we signed them.”
The Gunners have previously been accused of lacking ambition in the transfer market, however the club, who are adamant Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri won't be leaving this summer, are keen to improve the squad further to improve upon last season's fourth placed finish in the Barclays Premier League.
