Wenger explains decision on new signings ahead of transfer deadline
Arsene Wenger has explained the decision he has made on new signings not being pursued ahead of the transfer window’s deadline.
The Arsenal manager has been very quiet in the transfer market during this month with the addition of only one player, Cohen Bramall, secured so far.
As various rumours continue to link Arsenal with a late move for a new signing, Wenger insists the depth of his squad means no more business is required.
“Very quiet. On our front, we have a big squad and we are not in need of buying. On a general front it has been very quiet.” the Frenchman said ahead of the Premier League clash with Watford.
“That shows that there are not many players available who can strengthen English teams. It also shows that all the teams in England, especially the big teams, have big squads. That’s why not a lot happened.”
According to the Gunners boss, the return of several injured key players has been enough to bolster his squad.
“Yes, of course. It’s not only to buy players, you have to have a need in your squad first of all.” Wenger added
“I believe that number-wise and quality-wise, we have what is required to do well.
“Now it’s down to us to perform and to produce with the quality of our focus, the quality of our ambition and desire to produce the performance in every single game.”
