Arsene Wenger says he will make a new signing within the next two weeks. William Gallas and Emmanuel Adebayor scored to give Arsenal a 2-0 win in the Champions League third round first leg qualifier against Steve McClaren’s FC Twente in Arnhem last night.

But after being outplayed, particularly in the opening period, Arsenal boss Wenger knows he needs to strengthen his squad, with a central midfielder top of his list.

‘Something will certainly be done ahead of the second leg on 27 August, but not before Saturday,’ said Wenger as his side took a massive step towards the £20million bonus for being among Europe’s elite.

With his squad hit by injuries, Wenger admits it is unlikely he will be able to make many changes for Saturday’s Premier League game against West Brom. Wenger, who had to leave Cesc Fabregas, Philippe Senderos, Samir Nasri and Kolo Toure in London, said: ‘Our squad looks big because the players who were here did well. (Daily Mail)

After Cesc Fabregas went down earlier this week, Wenger realised that his squad could definitely use some added depth at the midfield position with the season starting on Saturday. No serious names have been thrown around the rumour mill as of yet; however, one would have to assume that Wenger is probably going to add a veteran central midfielder that could act as a stop-gap if Fabregas went out for an extended period of time during the season.

Do Arsenal supporters believe the club need to make another move before the transfer deadline? Who would you like Wenger to target?
