Arsene Wenger has hinted that he has no plans to bolster his attacking options at Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners have been busy in recent transfer windows and have brought Alexandre Lacazette, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to The Emirates to bolster their attacking options recently.

Aubameyang has been in fine form for the Gunners since signing for the north London side from Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window.

There is inevitably going to be plenty of fresh speculation about the players that Arsenal could look to sign this summer in the coming weeks and months.

But Wenger appears to have hinted that he has no plans to add to his attacking options this summer.

Speaking at his post-match news conference after Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday, Wenger said: “We have a good side.

“Overall, in some aspects of the game there is no need to buy more players at that level, because we have young strikers as well, promising strikers.

“But we’ll see that at the end of the season.”

Arsenal are currently preparing for the return leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie against CSKA Moscow in Russia on Thursday night.

The Gunners took a big step towards reaching the semi-finals last week when they sealed a 4-1 win over the Russian side at The Emirates in the first leg.

Arsenal are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table.
