‘We are still hoping to do something else’
Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal are still in search of a new addition to the squad.
The £10.9m deal to sign Petr Cech from Chelsea was announced two weeks ago but the Czech international remains Wenger’s solitary signing so far.
Arsenal have been linked with a host players including new Manchester United signing Morgan Schneiderlin.
Wenger told Canal+ that Schneiderlin is "not a player we planned for". Wonder if Flamini will be at #AFC after next year though.

And with fans calling for new faces, the Gunners boss has revealed that he may not be done yet with the transfer business.
“If we find ideally what we want, we are still hoping to do something else.”
Another star who had been linked to Arsenal is Manchester City-bound Raheem Sterling.
However, Wenger insists that the Liverpool forward was unlikely to join the Gunners due to the weight of options he already has in attack.
“For me Sterling is a top-class player. It’s a good buy for Man City. An expensive one, but they can afford it. Personally I like him.” he added
“I didn’t make a bid because he plays in an area where we have plenty of players. We have Welbeck, Walcott, Chamberlain. Sanchez, Wilshere can play there, Gnabry. He’s a wide player basically, or behind the striker.”
