Arsène Wenger is still looking to add "one or two players" to his Arsenal squad - but that depends on who leaves.

The manager has already brought in Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud since the end of last season while a number of squad players have returned from loan spells.

A handful of those have been linked with permanent moves and that will determine how many new recruits arrive between now and the end of the transfer window.

"We are still looking to add one or two players but it depends also on how many go out because we have to respect the squad number," Wenger told Arsenal Player.

"It's important to respect that so before we get players in we have to get some players out. That has not happened yet, the market is very quiet.

"I cannot tell you anything concrete about the situation [regarding those who might leave] because if they are not finding clubs they will stay here and be players of the squad. At the moment I cannot give you any concrete or clear indication."
