Arsene Wenger remained typically coy when asked if Arsenal will be signing any more new players in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners have been linked with a host of Europe’s top players during the summer but they have only managed to conclude deals to sign Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac so far.

Thomas Lemar is one name to have regularly been touted as a target for the Gunners, and there have been a whole host of other players said to be on Arsenal’s radar.

However, there have also been a number of players linked with moves away from Arsenal as Wenger looks to trim down his squad.

And the Arsenal manager hinted that selling players looks more likely than signing any new stars at The Emirates before the transfer deadline next Thursday.

Speaking at a news conference at London Colney ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Liverpool, Wenger said: “I am completely happy with the strength of squad and I have too many players, some with no chance to compete for places.

“One of the values of this club is to give a chance to young players, and if you have too many players of confirmed status you are in a difficult position.

“We have three or four [young players] who deserve a chance.”

Arsenal are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Liverpool on Sunday at Anfield as the Gunners look to return to winning ways following their 1-0 loss to Stoke last weekend.

The north London side are aiming to challenge for the Premier League title this season after coming up short and finishing fifth last term.
