I think it is a bit strange if you are an Arsenal supporter,” Solhekol said.
“You’re thinking ‘what’s going on? Our manager is saying that during this window we’ll only be able to get players in on loan, something not quite right there’.
“But if you look at what Arsenal did last year, they spent big, big money.
“They spent £70m on players like [Lucas] Torreira, [Matteo] Guendouzi, Sokratis [Papastathopoulos], also the goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
“And then go back 12 months last January when they signed Aubameyang for £57m.

“Also, the big thing they did last year as well as give a new contract to Mesut Ozil.
“He is one of the biggest earning players in the whole of the Premier League.
“So when you add all that up, you see that Arsenal in the final few months of Arsene Wenger’s time at the club, spent big, big money in the transfer market and also in wages.
“I’m also forgetting to mention Alexandre Lacazette in the summer of 2017, they signed him for nearly £50m.”

I think the £70m on four players in the summer, Ozil's contract, the £57m on Aubameyang last January and the £50m on Lacazette the summer before is exactly the recent we don't have money to spend now.
