Arsène Wenger says Arsenal will be active in the transfer market before the deadline passes on September 2.

Yaya Sanogo joined the Club last month but as yet there have been no further additions while a number of players have left - including Gervinho, Andrey Arshavin and Marouane Chamakh.

Wenger is confident he will add to his squad in the coming weeks.

"We are active," he told Arsenal Player. "We are in a situation like Manchester United, like Chelsea, where everybody expects signings and at the moment not a lot has happened.

"There are 18 days to go, so that is a long time in the transfer market and we will be active.

"I cannot certify what the number [of players coming in will be] but we will be active until the end, that is for sure."
