Arsenal to hand Unai Emery £75m transfer budget if Champions League football secured

Unai Emery will have just £75million to spend in the summer even if Arsenal manage to secure Champions League football, reports say.

Arsenal are currently in fourth place in the Premier League and remain in with a shot of winning the Europa League.

Qualifying for next season’s Champions League would serve as a major boost to Emery, considering Arsenal have struggled for consistency this campaign.

But Goal claim the achievement will not have a huge effect on the transfer budget, which will be set at around £75m.

Arsenal spent just over £71m last summer having missed out on Champions League football, spending the majority of that money on Lucas Torreira and Bernd Leno.

Emery though will be motivated to avoid the possibility of having just £45m to spend should Arsenal miss out on a Champions League spot.

Arsenal need a replacement for Juventus-bound Aaron Ramsey and Emery also wants to sign a left-back and wide attacker.

Emery is also keen on securing another striker with Danny Welbeck expected to leave the club when his contract expires this summer.

Arsenal’s top four hopes hinge on the Gunners capitalising on their game in hand over Chelsea, who are also on 66 points.

Emery’s side travel to Napoli on Thursday night for the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie.

Winning the Europa League, something Emery did three times in a row as Sevilla boss, will guarantee a spot in next season’s Champions League.
