 Arsene Wenger delivers update on possible new arrivals at The Emirates Not so good news for Arsenal fans if they are hoping to see a few more signings in the transfer window as the Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has revealed the North London club are not close to doing any signing.

The Emirates club have been impressive in the ongoing summer transfer window. Arsenal have added Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United, David Ospina arrived from Nice and Calum Chambers was signed from Southampton.

Wenger admitted that he does not have anything special to add when asked about the transfers.

“Not at the moment, no. I have nothing special to add on that at the moment. Honestly, we are not close to signing anybody,” Wenger told the club’s official website.

Meanwhile, Arsenal saw their latest fixture of the Champions League play-off end in a goalless draw against Besiktas. The game ended in a goalless draw as the Gunners failed to score the much needed away goal.

In addition to this, Wenger saw his star player Aaron Ramsey sent off during the match. Wenger hailed the Turkish capital club for their display.

“We faced a very good Besiktas team tonight who were at our level. Their commitment was absolutely fantastic,” the Gunners added.

  1. Big mistake not signing anymore players. We have a glaring problem. We do not have a striker that can deliver as I believe that Giroud should sit on the bench

  2. Oh guy I think you are rigth arsenal need a world class striker,defensive mifielder and defender that can change the match any day any time if wenger refuse to this am sorry it will heard for arsenal to win EPL and CHL !!!

  3. This is a typical Wenger way. He has finished his signings. Anybody thinking otherwise should relax. Wenger has a way of giving us an incomplete team so this time is not going to be different. My problem is that he has given Giroud more chances than he has given any player. Am told he wants to sell Podoski. Let him sell other strikers to give room for Giroud.Only failure this season will make him think again So sad.

  4. Is it that Arsene Wenger is blind that he can’t see our(Arsenal) problems in midfield and attack? Wenger needs to put aside that French solidarity b/w him and Oliver Giroud and bring a quality striker to Arsenal. We also need holding midfielders like Sami Khedira or William Cahlvalho. We are no longer paying large debts, so spend the money to solve those problems on our team.

  5. If arsene wenger doesn’t sign a dm, striker and a Central defender he should be sacked. It’s not rocket science and how long has it been since we won the league?! Cummon. Some might argue and say it’s because of wenger that we dint win the premiership last season. What team has ever won the premiership without a world class striker??? Go on I’ll wait…. as much as I hate to say it his time at arsenal is running out. The worst part is that we are only 3 players short from winning everything and I mean literally everything. What we waiting for? Kmt

  6. That is good or bad gambling Wenger most take. Remember our players are in the edge of comeback. But we need DM after Emirates cup and qualify shows we need strength in midfield. If Walcott back to squad Sanchez will used as main striker like Aguero did to Citizens. Sanogo is clumsy we need to play Campbell more than often that player need to link with other players fast bcos he had a good potential.

  7. I don’t think that Olivier Giroud is that good enough to lead arsenal front line. Arsene Wenger should at least give chance to Joel Camble this season to do that.I personally believe that the lad has proved it beyond all reasonable doubt at both WC&CL level that he is capable to lead that front line for us this season.

  8. wenger only believe in French players there is no good French players than Thierry Henry and Patrick Vierra again, let him play Sanchez upfront substitute him with Campell our problem is finish upfront, buy Monolas we r done with defense and buy S.Keidra we have complete squad that can bet every body and win everything in Europe.

  9. I think if wenger doesn’t sign a dm, striker and a Central defender he’s work is done at Arsenal. The man is old wornout any way, how the F*** did think he’ll win sh*t with Giroud as the only striker?

  10. wenger is wenger he will not change his policies becoz he does not learn from the past mistakes! he just believes in doing business for the club en himself! he does not mind what comes end of the season, just tell him to teach giroud how to score goals not his childish smiles!!!! wake up mr AW sign players!!!! just astriker (bonny) en a dm ( calvaho) !!!!
