Wenger may seek new signings

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hinted that he is still in the market for a number of new faces ahead of the closure of the transfer window on Friday.

The Frenchman has been uncharacteristically active in the market this summer, bringing in the talented trio of Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud in an apparent u-turn from his traditional policy of promoting from the youth team.

This maybe down to him growing tired of his side’s almost constant failure, which has remarkably seen them fail to lift a trophy for the last seven seasons.

His lack of ambition in the transfer market has often been criticised, most notably by a string of players that have left the Emirates Stadium, complaining that they didn’t believe they had a chance of winning anything in North London.

Despite his activity, he has once again been powerless to stop some of his players heading for the exit in the close season, most notably captain Robin van Persie and talismanic midfielder Alex Song.

The Gunners are still to score since the departure of Van Persie and fell to their second successive goalless draw at Stoke on Sunday, in a game where both sides struggled to create any real chances and the odds betting still puts them as outsiders for the title.

However, the latest sport updates are suggesting that following his side’s average start to the campaign, Wenger will now be looking to bring some fresh faces to the club, but only if they compliment his existing squad.

"I'm pleased with what we've done but I anticipate we will do something and we are still on the market," Wenger told Sky Sports. "It depends on the quality of players who are available. If we can find somebody who can strengthen our squad with the quality we want we will do it in any position."
