Revealed: Arsene Wenger confirms Arsenal’s summer transfer plans

"We're still in the market to buy one or two more players," says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal are still on the lookout to sign two more players in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners have already moved quickly to secure the signing of midfielder Granit Xhaka as Wenger bolsters his squad ahead of next season.

The north London side have been heavily linked with a move for a number of players as Wenger looks to strengthen his side.

Arsenal have tabled a bid to sign Jamie Vardy from Leicester City and continue to be linked with a host of Europe’s other top stars.

Now, Wenger has revealed that he still wants to add at least two more players to his squad as he prepares for the 2016-17 season.

Speaking in an interview with Tencent Sports, Wenger said: “We’ve already bought one player – Granit Xhaka – from Borussia Monchengladbach, because we’ve lost three players.

“We’ve lost Mikel Arteta, we’ve lost Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini.

“So we’ve bought one midfielder and we’re still in the market to buy one or two more players.

“But it is not easy. It is not just buying. We also have to keep a good balance. If you buy too many players you destabilise your team. So three is the maximum.”
