Arsene Wenger says the Premier League’s “big clubs” can learn from Leicester City’s success.
Leicester spent less than £27 million on 10 new signings last summer, including Player of the Season contender N’Golo Kante, and Wenger says the league’s more established top-four sides can take a lot from Leicester’s approach.Claudio Ranieri’s side are currently favourites to win the title, sitting top of the table having only lost three games in an incredible season for the Foxes.
"It’s down to the quality of players you bring in and sometimes the opportunities are not always necessarily linked with the amount of money"
“What we learn from Leicester City is what I knew for a long time, which is that it’s not just only down to the amount of money you spend,” he said.
“It’s down to the quality of players you bring in and sometimes the opportunities are not always necessarily linked with the amount of money.
“If you look well, they finished very strongly last season and on top of that they brought some players in who have given them something more, like N’Golo Kante.
“He had a huge impact. We have spoken about [West Ham’s] Dimitri Payet - you could say along with Payet he is one of the players who had a big impact in this league.”
