Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal are keen to sign a number of new players this summer but insists that the Gunners will only spend on top-quality players.

The north London side announced their second signing of the summer last Wednesday when they concluded a club-record deal to bring Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette to the club.

Arsenal also moved quickly to secure the capture of Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer at the start of the summer.

With the transfer window in full swing, Arsenal inevitably continue to be linked with a host of new players as they prepare for the new season.

However, Wenger has once again warned Gunners fans that he will not splash the cash just for the sake of it and is instead focusing on quality over quantity.

Wenger told a news conference in Sydney on Tuesday: “I am open to get some more signings, but it is not easy to find the players who can strengthen our squad, because we have top-quality players.

“There are two ways to improve always: analyse what we did well last season and what we did not so well and improve that, and then you can bring new players in.

“But at the moment, because we are in pre-season, it is very important for us to analyse well what happened last season and where we can improve.

“We have top quality in our squad, and at the moment I focus on that.”

Arsenal will be looking to mount a serious title challenge next season after the Gunners ended up in a disappointing fifth place in the Premier League table.

They did end the season on a high, however, by beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final back in May.
