Wenger confirms he's happy with Arsenal's current squad

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he is happy with the current depth of the squad at the club.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger explained at his pre-match press conference ahead of the Hull City game that he’s happy with the current state of his squad.

Wenger gave a very early hint into possible transfer plans for the summer by suggesting the strength of the club’s bench and reserves at the moment, shows how deep and impressive the squad is as things stand.

“I am happy with the depth of the squad because I have many top international players who sometimes cannot make the squad,” he said.

Wenger has shown in the last two seasons with deals for Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil that he is not afraid to spend big money on players who will improve key areas in his squad.

It remains to be seen whether he will follow suit this summer or whether he will simply tinker with things and sign back up players to those he already has available.

There is an arguable need for reinforcements at holding midfield, up front, down one side of midfield and in defence this summer and Arsenal have the resources to sign the sort of players they need.

Someone like Jack Wilshere, who has been fighting his way back from injury since the turn of the year, is an example of someone who can step forward to provide an option in the middle of the team.

It will be frustrating for some of the club’s fans that more won’t be known about realistic targets until well into June because Wenger will likely be reluctant to think about transfers until after the FA Cup final against Aston Villa.

Hopefully he can make the right decisions, which have the Gunners competing hard for the title next season.
