Arsene Wenger says he is open to doing more business in the summer transfer window.

The Arsenal manager has already signed Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez, Newcastle United defender Mathieu Debuchy, goalkeeper David Ospina and English teenager Calum Chambers this summer.

The bigger clubs have done their deals earlier, and when one starts everybody follows, and that’s why it was a bit quicker

The Gunners have been unusually proactive in the early stages of the transfer window, but Wenger suggested that Arsenal would be looking to add more numbers to their squad before the deadline.

“I’m very happy because I did what I wanted, and I am still open to do more,” said Wenger.

“Let’s not forget that we are at the first of August today, and the transfer window closes on the 31st. For years… I didn’t sit with [the media] here on the first of August having done quite a lot [of business].

Wenger continued: “We are a bit ahead of what we usually do, because the availability on the market was bigger and earlier than before.

“The bigger clubs have done their deals earlier, and when one starts everybody follows, and that’s why it was a bit quicker. Many clubs decided to do it before the World Cup, and since the World Cup was over, not a lot has happened. But I think the second half of August, the 15th to 30th, will be busy again.

“Everyone takes a breather at the moment because everyone checks in their preparation games what they still need. People have done the biggest part of what they want to do and the last part will be done after the preparation games to see what you miss.”
