Arsenal transfer news: Sky Sports reporter reveals real reason Gunners cannot buy players

 That is according to Sky Sports reporter and transfer expert Kaveh Solhekol Arsenal boss Unai Emery today announced the club cannot make any permanent signings this month  Emery said the only possible incomings would be to bring players in on loan

 Talking about reported target Denis Suarez, Emery said: "I don't know now his [Suarez's] situation but we can only sign on a loan  "We cannot sign permanently We can only loan players" Arsenal spent around £70m last summer and also splashed out £57m the previous January on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang  The summer of 2017 saw Alexandre Lacazette arrive for a then-club record £465m And Solhekol says that expenditure, as well as the £350,000-a-week contract given to Mesut Ozil, is the reason they cannot spend this month  “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 ” Arsenal are back in Premier League action on Saturday when they visit West Ham (12 30pm)
