Juventus submit late bid for Gallas and Arsene is prepared this time

It seems Arsenal have learnt a great deal from the past, as Wenger braces himself for an exodus of defensive players at the North London outfit.

Arsenal' manager Arsene Wenger says he's prepared to spend the right money on the right players as he plans a mini shopping spree, which could entail the bolstering of his defensive options by at least two new signings.

The manager reaffirmed his earlier stance on addressing the frailties of the team instead of throwing the club's hard-earned cash around unnecessarily.

Wenger said: "The basic improvement that have to be made is defensive and with spending the right money.

The right money is not necessarily quantity because you never know how much people want for the players you want.

But what I mean by the right money is that we will not be scared to spend if needed."

Meanwhile, Italian giants Juventus have registered their interest in the want-away former Arsenal defender William Gallas, who is yet to extend his contract with the Gunners due to some disagreements over the club's current offer.

According to L'equipe the Turin side is set to face stiff competition from PSG and fellow Serie A counterpart AS Roma, both sides are thought to be on the look out, but Greek side Panathinaikos are in pole position to land the centre back on a free transfer.
