Arsenal transfers: Arsene Wenger not looking for another striker
Arsenal transfers: Arsene Wenger rules out the possibility of bringing in an extra striker this summer
Arsene Wenger has ruled out the possibility of bringing another striker to Arsenal this summer.
The Gunners have already secured the services of Chile forward Alexis Sánchez, and with Theo Walcott also able to play up front, Wenger doesn’t feel that the north Londoners need any more firepower in attack.
I am very happy with what I have done until now
“Up front we don’t need any more,” Wenger said. “It’s not especially for numbers.
“We need a goalkeeper for sure and, after that, it depends on how our midfielders get through without injuries until the start of the season.”
Wenger did, however, confirm that the Gunners are in the market for a new goalkeeper and defender following Lukasz Fabianski’s exit to Swansea City and the possible departure of Thomas Vermaelen in the coming weeks.
“Maybe at centre-back we’ll still bring one in,” he continued. “We are still out there to strengthen our squad.
“You do the deals when it’s possible, this time we could do it early and I am very happy with what I have done until now.
“It’s easier to prepare, but we are not the only club who have done business.”
Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for Germany midfielder Sami Khedira, while Espanyol goalkeeper Kiko Casilla has also been touted as a target.
