Arsene Wenger hints at Arsenal’s summer transfer plans

Posted by

Arsene Wenger has hinted that Arsenal will look to strengthen their squad during the summer, but has suggested that it won’t be easy to invest his money wisely.

The Gunners look set to once again fall short in the title race this summer, with their faint title hopes having been dented with last weekend’s 3-3 draw against West Ham United.

The revival that was promised when they beat title rivals Leicester City 2-1 on Valentine’s Day has never truly been realised, and the North London heavyweights find themselves a considerable 13 points behind the Foxes having played a game less than Claudio Ranieri’s unlikely leaders.

However, with only six games left to play, the Gunners appear set to fall short in this year’s title race.

While Wenger, speaking to the media as per The Guardian, has refused to directly accept that his side are under-performing, he has confirmed that he’s looking to strengthen this summer.

“If you look at the top three teams, you will see they have not changed their team a lot,” the French coach began, addressing potential summer business. “We have to strengthen our squad but it’s not obvious to find the players despite the money the English clubs will have.

“We are already working but we have to find the players and that is not easy.”

The North London giants may well need to strengthen their midfield this summer, with the likes of Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla all the wrong side of 30, and Jack Wilshere yet to prove that he can remain injury-free during a campaign.
