Gunners boss on the lookout for new additions.Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he is still on the lookout for new signings to come in before the end of the summer transfer window, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Speaking ahead of his side’s first game of the Premier League season at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon, the Gunners boss revealed he still feels his side are a little short in one or two areas.
A defender seems the most likely to come in after the club sold Belgian centre-back and club captain Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona, though youngster Calum Chambers has impressed in the middle since his £16m move from Southampton earlier in the summer.
Big names such as Mats Hummels have been linked with moves to the Emirates Stadium, though Wenger remained tight-lipped as ever on any potential targets, hinting only that he could look to bring in another defensive player.
“We are maybe a bit short in certain areas, but the depth of the squad is very good,” Wenger explained. “I could still do something. I won’t rule it out.”
The Frenchman stated, however, that he is very happy with his options in attack after bringing in Alexis Sanchez for £35m from Barcelona, despite links to the likes of Mario Balotelli and Loic Remy earlier in this transfer window.
“I’m very excited by this group,” he added. “I’m happy with the players we’ve signed. They have integrated well.
“Look at the players we have up front. We have unbelievable strength. What is a big signing? For you, it’s the size of the fee. For me it’s the quality of the player.
“I don’t think it will take Alexis Sanchez long to adapt. He has all the ingredients to be a very good Premier League player.”
