Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has declared that the club is still looking to add talent to the squad and make a few transfers, but despite having lost RVP and Song, the Frenchman isn’t too certain of his statement.
According to Wenger, some players might still join, but his main focus is to get back Wilshere and Rosicky (and when Wenger says that, it’s not usually a good sign of new transfers), so it’s tough to say whether Arsenal will manage to bring in fresh legs or not.
“Some things can still happen,” he said.
“I don’t want make a promise that I cannot keep. It does not only depend on me. But there still could be some action on the transfer market – ins and outs.”
“We are working [in the market],” he went on. “We’ll see what we can do.
“The transfer market is open for two months and yet for one month and three weeks it is nearly closed. It wakes up completely in the last week and then every minute becomes important. Everybody has played for time for seven or eight weeks and now suddenly everyone is in a hurry. And that is when the most intense activity happens.
“We knew we had to buy [at this point] last season. We had lost Wilshere and Gibbs. We had just beaten Udinese in the Champions League but had just lost to Manchester United. This season is completely different. We have a good, stable, focused squad. We just have to show how good we are in the season.
“We have Diaby and Oxlade-Chamberlain back now while Rosicky and Wilshere are coming back. They are all international-stature players. I focus highly on that. If we get these players back in good shape then we have a very, very strong squad.”
By this time last season, Arsenal’s transfer campaign has just started basically, so we can suppose that the officials won’t sleep about and that they will bring in at least a couple more players as Wenger stated earlier this year.
Arsene Wenger might be taking a bit of a gamble not properly reinforcing his team before the new campaign kicks into full flow and the odds on Arsenel making serious progress in the champions league are probably going to reflect that.
