Arsenal’s defence will stay as is, but should Wenger be looking to add?

The Sun reports that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger isn’t looking to sign any defensive personnel during the summer months, with the Frenchman denying any current interest in Vincent Kompany. Wenger managed to woo Welsh whelp Aaron Ramsey from under the noses of Man Utd, something that was certain to have sent The Lord of the Ferg’s nose a dark – and jealous – shade of red.

The Sun’s press hound Ben Kinsella points out that Arsenal had the worst defensive record of the top four clubs, with 31 goals leaked. Wenger remains defiant though, saying:

“I have been interested in Vincent Kompany ever since he was 16, but I am not interested in him this year. There is nobody I need for my team’s defensive department.

“I still follow Kompany’s progress all the time and I know him very, very well. But he will not be an Arsenal player next season — and you can print that.

“I know all the good Belgian players. Arsenal are following a number of them with great interest, although I won’t name names.” (The Sun)

Is this a case of “In Wenger We Trust” or “Wake Up Arsene!!!”?…
