Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes finishing outside the Premier League top four will not in any way affect the club's transfer business for next season.
The Gunners are in fifth with 69 points and two games remaining.
Liverpool's 4-0 win at West Ham took them to third on 73 points with one game remaining, while Manchester City are fourth on 72 points with two games left to play.
The top four teams qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
"I believe if we finish outside the top four it will not have any influence how the club will be led and behave in the transfer market," Wenger said in his press conference on Monday ahead of the EPL clash with Sunderland on Tuesday.
"Our chances are just to win our games. Getting 75 points would be four more points than last year.
"We had a difficult period and we have recovered from it. I'm very positive [ about the team’s displays]. It looks like we've been getting stronger every game."
Wenger also gave a report on the injury front.
“There is a little problem with (Laurent) Koscielny but everyone else should be available," he said.
“Alexis will have a test today. It didn’t look too good but with him you never know – he is so keen. Maybe it was just a kick.”
