Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has sought to clarify recent reports suggesting that he’s set to do minimal transfer business this summer due to our form in 2015…
The boss set the record straight whilst speaking to Sky Sports.
Reports emerged last week carrying quotes from Wenger in which he appeared to state that our sensational form of late had “massively” affected his transfer plans for the summer (via the Mirror).
“We are not in need of absolute change. We have a strong squad. We have some strong young players behind,” the boss was quoted as saying.
However, after our 3-1 win against Hull City, the boss was quick to clarify those comments, instead stating that he wants quality rather than quantity this summer.

“What I meant by that is that we do not need a number of players,” Wenger said.
“If we find top, world class players, then we’ll look at it.”
Despite the drama the mainstream media attempted to create, Wenger’s comments are music to our ears. The sheer number of options we have across the pitch is frightening at times and the last thing we need is adding players just for the sake of it.
Anytime a player becomes available this summer, Wenger must ask himself one question: ‘Will this player walk into my XI’?
If that method is implemented throughout the transfer window then we’ll only add world class talent to an already strong squad, which will strengthen out title challenge.
