Arsene Wenger delivers latest transfer update to Arsenal fans
Arsene Wenger insists that Arsenal remain very active in the summer transfer window
Arsene Wenger insists that Arsenal remain on the lookout for both attacking and defensive reinforcements in the summer transfer window.
The north London club have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks as the transfer window gradually edges towards its conclusion.
Despite all of the speculation, however, Arsenal have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka, defender Rob Holding and striker Takuma Asano.
Many of Wenger’s players have already returned to London Colney to begin their preparations for the new Premier League season.
And despite Arsenal not having yet signed the big-name player that so many of the club’s fans are calling for, Wenger has once again moved to reassure supporters that the Gunners are working hard on their transfer business.
Speaking in an interview with Arsenal Player, Wenger said: “We look for offensive and defensive positions, we are very active in the transfer market, but it’s a long time to go.
“Everybody has the handbrake on at the moment. It’s a little bit of a poker game until mid-August, in my opinion. We might have to be good at poker.”
Arsenal – who have not won the title since the 2003-04 campaign – finished in second place in the Premier League table last season, 10 pointe behind surprise champions Leicester City.
