Press conference

Wenger has been linked with high-profile players and hopes to complete some deals soon.

“I don't disagree that we are a bit light at the moment,” he said. “There are 18 days to go until the end of the transfer market and we are of course looking to strengthen our squad.

“I don't want to come out on any specific name because that would not be right. Usually in the press, you are well informed.

“Ideally you would want it to be quicker, but to finalise any transfer you need the agreement of three parties. You can see from our main rivals that it is not easy.

“At us, Chelsea, Machester United, it is difficult to find the quality players to strengthen the team and the squad who are available at the moment but there are a shortage of top, top, top players who are available.

“It's not a question of spending the money, it's a question of finding the right players. As I told you, you are well informed, you certainly heard that we are not scared to spend money. But we want the right players.”
