Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has given an update on his transfer plans this summer and confirmed he’s open to bringing in ‘one or two’ more players but only if the right deals come up.

Many fans have become restless after seeing the club bring in just one new face this summer with Petr Cech the sole acquisition following his arrival from Chelsea.

We’ve been linked with a whole host of names in recent months but the boss appears reluctant to pull the trigger on proposed deals and as a result we’re seeing targets head off to other clubs.

However, Arsene insists that he is still looking to sign ‘one or two’ players this summer but will only open his wallet if he find exactly what he’s looking for.

Speaking at his news conference having arrived in Singapore to begin our pre-season tour, the boss told Arsenal.com:

on further transfer deals…

That doesn’t depend only on us, it depends on whether we can find them, but if we can find one or two players we will do it.

on whether Cech will he be the only new signing…

It depends, if we find ideally what we want, we are still hoping to do something else.

I think it’s pretty clear that Arsene is only going to buy if he can find a player who he feels will really strengthen us at the right price. We want a defensive midfielder and were in for Schneiderlin but the boss wasn’t prepared to pay the £20m+ asking price, so we’ve passed.

I personally think it’s a big mistake and it’s a huge risk as there aren’t too many other holding midfielders out there who can offer what Schneiderlin can, but we have to trust Wenger and hope he has something else up his sleeve.

But if we fail to sign another holding midfielder and Arteta/Flamini are the back-up for Coquelin next season, I think there are going to be some seriously pissed off Arsenal fans and with good reason.

We have the basis for a title winning squad, lets hope we bring in the two world class players we need over the coming weeks….

    Why do you think we’re looking for a defensive midfielder? We have Coq and Arteta (and Flamini). More likely is a striker Clearly Wenger is waiting for current inflated prices to subside. Possibly also a LB if Monreal wants to return to Spain.

      Arteta and Flamini to win the league as backups to Coquelin? Do you believe that a sow’s ear can become a silk purse. Flamini and Arteta have proven they CANNOT do it. Why do you suddenly believe they can. If you expect Coquelin to play up to 65 games you are both deluded and unfair.

    Even if Wenger were to buy a player, he would not go for someone who is not 28 years of age if he is not a goalkeeper. If the player is a free agent maybe he can talk about it, but to buy a 28 year old, Wenger will never ever do that.

    Is Wenger giving his transfer plan for next transfer window. All Arsenal targets have been signed by the rival club, even Mr Wenger commenting about how good Man United transfer are. What is he waiting for, dragging his feet in the transfer market like every year . The best thing for Wenger is to keep quiet not to talk too much to irritate Arsenal fans. After nineteen years they know who he is and what he will or will not do
