The new Arsenal manager will need a summer transfer budget of £250million to get the side fighting for a top-four place again.

That is according to club legend Ray Parlour, who has urged the Gunners board to back their new boss in the transfer market when Arsene Wenger leaves.

Arsenal are reportedly hoping to appoint their next manager before this summer’s World Cup, as 68-year-old Wenger prepares to leave the club after 22 years in charge.

Juventus chief Massimiliano Allegri (pictured above) is the new favourite for the Emirates Stadium hotseat, with the Italian set for talks over his future in Turin at the end of the season.

And, whoever is chosen to succeed Wenger, three-time Premier League winner Parlour insists they need funds to get the Gunners back into the Champions League.

Speaking on Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the ‘Invincibles’ star said: “If I was the new manager going into the club in the summer, the first thing I would say is: ‘how much have I got to spend?’

“I’d say they would need £200m, but a little bit more if they want to complete – £250m.

“A big problem Arsenal are going to have this summer is attracting the big players, because they’re not  in the Champions League.

“The challenge for Arsenal’s new manager is to get back into the top four, and to do that you’ve got to have investment – simple.

“The board have got to back him. They won’t want to spend a lot of money in the summer, but that’s what they’re going to have to do if they want to compete in the top four.”
