Gazidis ready for 'big summer'

It is a big summer. We have been working very, very hard to gain the kind of financial capability we need as a football club to be at the very top end of the game.

The ambition that (majority shareholder) Stan Kroenke, Arsene Wenger, the players, our staff and I know all of the fans have is to be competing to win the Premier League and Champions League. If we are at that level, the trophies will come.

It is all about giving us the capability to go to the manager and to say 'here is the money for you to compete'. That is why we are in this stadium and that is what we want to do.

– Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis
