Arsene Wenger: These are my Arsenal transfer plans this summer

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger delivers an update on his transfer plans in the summer window

Arsene Wenger has hinted that Arsenal will sign three players in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners boss was criticised for failing to sign an outfield player last summer after Wenger signed Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech in an £11m deal from London rivals Chelsea.

Wenger signed Egypt international Mohamed Elneny in an £8m deal from Swiss champions Basel in the January transfer window and the 23-year-old has proven a big hit at The Emirates.

Arsenal managed to finish above Tottenham Hotspur on the final day of the Premier League season after a 4-0 victory over relegated Aston Villa as Spurs lost 5-1 at Newcastle United.

“We want to keep the squad stable over the summer while strengthening where possible,” Wenger told his media conference.

“You want the group to be stimulated and to believe that we have improved the quality.

“I must say, we want to combine technical stability with players that we know want to play and know our game.

“Maybe bring in three players for example. That’s the right level for me.”

The Gunners finished 10 points behind Premier League champions Leicester City after a disappointing campaign for Wenger’s side.
