Arsene Wenger discusses possibility of new Arsenal signings

The French coach has stated that the Gunners are in the market but will only make a move if an exceptional player becomes available.

Arsene Wenger has stated on the club’s official website that Arsenal are in the transfer market but will only make a move if an exceptional player becomes available.

The Gunners have had a quiet summer in terms of recruitment, with Petr Cech’s signing from Chelsea the only piece of major business by the North London club.

With the Emirates Stadium faithful crying out for the French coach to spend money before the close of the transfer window on Tuesday, Wenger has addressed a question stating whether the Gunners fans could expect any new faces.

The long-serving manager admitted that Arsenal would not panic buy and only move for a player that was exceptional.

“We are open and we are in the transfer market,” Wenger is quoted as saying on the club’s official website.

“If we find an exceptional player in any sector, we will do it. At the moment I don’t know if something will happen or not.”

A section of the Arsenal fans have been crying out for the club to splurge big money on a world-class striker, while there is also an argument to suggest that a new central midfielder would help to drive the team forward.

The title hopefuls got their season back on track with a 1-0 away win against Newcastle yesterday, with the Gunners picking up seven points from a possible 12 heading into the international break.
