Arsenal club secretary David Miles believes that Arsene Wenger will be working on signing new players right up to the transfer deadline.
The Frenchman has remained coy on whether or not he will be adding high profile additions to his young Gunners squad, but having sealed Champions League football and with at least £60 million in the bank from the sale of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri he is fully expected to do so by success hungry supporters.
Speaking in the aftermath of this afternoon’s Champions League draw which pits Arsenal against French side Marseille, Greek champions Olympiakos and Bundesliga winners Borussia Dortmund, Miles told Sky Sports:
“I think that you’ll appreciate I can’t exactly give you specifics but certainly everyone is committed.
“If there’s quality players to be brought in I’ve got every faith in Arsene Wenger that he’ll do so.
“As you rightly say we’ve got just under a week. I’ve been involved myself in some last minute transfers so until the window actually closes I think that we’re still open for business.”
In the last 24 hours the likes of Swiss starlet Xherdan Shaqiri, French enforcer Yann M’Vila, Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard and Everton’s Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta have all been linked with the club.
