Rather than sack Mikel Arteta this summer, Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke will back him with a big-money transfer spending spree despite the Gunners' disastrous season.
Fans have begun calling for Arteta's head, with many believing the manager is too inexperienced to lead a club of Arsenal's level.
But Kroenke doesn't agree, and is convinced that the former midfielder is the right man to lead the club forward.
In order to help him do that, the owners have apparently sanctioned a huge spending spree this summer, reports The Sun.
The report claims at least two or three big-name players will arrive through the doors at the Emirates this summer.
However, the report suggests the Gunners boss will be sacked by the end of the year if Arsenal are still sat in mid-table.
