Gunners bench Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger has revealed the total number of new faces he would like to add to his squad ahead of the 2016/17 season. 

After surrendering the Premier League title to Leicester City, the Frenchman has been urged by fans to secure several new additions this summer.

However, Wenger insists he may only bring in two more players – to maintain team chemistry – after completing the signing of Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach this week.

“We want to keep the squad stable over the summer while strengthening where possible,” the Arsenal boss said.

“You want the group to be stimulated and to believe that we have improved the quality.

“I must say, we want to combine technical stability with players that we know want to play and know our game. Maybe bring in three players for example. That’s the right level for me.”

Arsenal were the only club from Europe’s big five leagues to sign just one player – Petr Cech – during last summer’s transfer window.
