Wenger confident of more signings

15 August 2013 19:32

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted he will strive to add to his squad before the end of the transfer window.

The Frenchman has endured a frustrating close-season, seeing numerous targets slip out of his reach, opting for other clubs, or choosing not to make the move to the Emirates Stadium.

Young striker Yaya Sanogo represents the only arrival at the London club so far in pre-season, while a number of high earners have been moved out including Gervinho, Marouane Chamakh and Andrey Arshavin.

But Wenger has been quick to confirm that the club continue to work hard to bolster the squad ahead of the new season.

He told the club’s official website: "We are active. We are in a situation like Manchester United, like Chelsea, where everybody expects signings and at the moment not a lot has happened.

"There are 18 days to go, so that is a long time in the transfer market and we will be active.

"I cannot certify what the number (of players coming in will be), but we will be active until the end, that is for sure."

Wenger has a strong squad available to him for the opening match against Aston Villa on Saturday, though he may be without Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla, with the latter flying back from international duty on Thursday.

Vice-captain Arteta has a slight thigh problem which will be assessed ahead of the weekend.
