Arsene Wenger: Not in a hurry to make new signings

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted he will do his best to make new signings this summer, but admits it’s “not easy” to find players capable of improving the Gunners squad.

The Frenchman has often frustrated the Arsenal fans by his unwillingness to spend the club’s cash and has even admitted he’s prudent with their money as he feels the “club belongs to me”.

To most fans, Arsenal need to invest in a few new additions over the summer if they’re to avoid the familiar story of falling short at the final hurdle, but Wenger admits there’s no guarantees the club will splash the cash this summer.

“You need to keep a core of players and strengthen where we can, but the team is going the right way,” he said. “It’s at the moment difficult for us to accept we’re not completely there, but you have to accept that.

“If you look at the top three, you’ll see that the teams have not changed a lot.

“The core is not good enough? That’s an outside point of view. We have again to analyse it in an objective way. And this team has won many games and the quality of many games was at top level.

“We have to strengthen, but it is not obvious, despite the money the English clubs will have, to find the players who will strengthen your squad. We will of course work very hard to do that and we are already working, but we have to find the players. It’s not easy.

“I will judge (the likes of, Mohamed) Elneny at the end of the season, but for sure he’s had a big impact, much bigger than expected because usually a guy comes in, it takes him a few months to adapt, and him and Iwobi had a big impact on the quality of our game.”
