Arsenal players tell Wenger to spend big money

Arsenal's first-team stars have urged Arsene Wenger to spend big this month to capitalise on the club's impressive start, according to the Daily Star.

The Gunners currently sit top of the Premier League table just over mid-way through the campaign.

But they've been overly reliant on French international Olivier Giroud to lead the attack - back-up Danish forward Nicklas Bendtner is the club's only alternative.

They have been linked with a whole host of top names, including Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa, Napoli's Gonzalo Higuain and Manchester City's Stevan Jovetic.

But, so far at least, they're yet to make a move. Summer signing Yaya Sanogo is reportedly close to a comeback after suffering with a long-term back injury - although the young Frenchman is not expected to make an immediate impact on the first-team.

And the report claims Arsenal's top stars have pleaded with Wenger to open the chequebook and sign a big name.

The Gunners spent £42.4m on Mesut Ozil last summer, and the club reportedly has a sizeable transfer kitty at the ready for Wenger to use.

And the club's players want Wenger to strengthen the squad further as it looks to compete on three fronts - the Champions League, FA Cup and Premier League - with the aim of winning a first trophy since 2005.
