Gunners boss promises club will be busy.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has promised the club’s fans that the club will spring into action in the transfer market soon as they continue to search for the right kind of additions, Sky Sports reports.
Chief executive Ivan Gazidis may have talked up the club’s new “financial firepower” at the end of last season, but so far the only confirmed signing has been France U-21 striker Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer from Auxerre in what has been a more than frustrating transfer window for the Emirates outfit so far.
Failed attempts to land Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain and Liverpool’s Luis Suarez has been made all the worse by the likelihood of missing out on Bayern Munich’s Luis Gustavo too.
But Wenger has decided to remain defiant, insisting that the players will start arriving soon enough.
“We are active. We are in a situation like Manchester United, like Chelsea, where everybody expects signings and at the moment not a lot has happened,” he said.
“There are 18 days to go, so that is a long time in the transfer market and we will be active. I cannot certify what the number [of players coming in will be], but we will be active until the end, that is for sure.”
