Arsene Wenger says he’s hoping to bring in more players before the transfer window closes but says he’s unsure if there will be any further arrivals before Tuesday at 6pm.
So far this season the only purchase has been the £10m capture of Petr Cech from Chelsea, and with Arsenal struggling to in front of goal there’s increased pressure on Arsene Wenger to dip into the transfer market.
The manager said he’s willing to do that, not ruling out a purchase in other positions either, but remained as un-forthcoming as ever when it comes to what might happen.
“We are open and we are in the transfer market,” he said. “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.
“We’re working on it, I’m not any more or less optimistic than I was last week. You always want more goalscorers, but it’s unpredictable.”
So, we’ll see. Not long to wait now one way or the other.
Also, what do we make of this? Inside info or just using his position to wind people up?
