Wenger Comments On Arsenal's Transfer Plans

Join the Pain in the Arsenal team!

"I cannot tell you more", Wenger said in his Friday morning press conference.

"We will still recruit somebody, it's possible".

The Gunners have up until now signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United and Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos during the transfer window while allowing Alexis Sanchez get his move away from the club. We keep our players.

"I would expect, whatever happens, for Aubameyang to come in", he said.

The Gunners lodged a £43.5m bid but the Bundesliga outfit immediately rejected the bid as it fell well short of their €60m valuation at today's exchange rates. If the deal goes through it will bolster Arsenal's attack and will give them considerable options up front.

When quizzed for an update on Arsenal's pursuit of the Gabon international this morning, Wenger says we are still no nearer to reaching an agreement but hinted there is still time for a deal to be struck.

Despite the re-signing of Robin van Persie this week, the Eredivisie side are keen for the Danish international to stay, but reports suggest the their heads might be turned if Newcastle come back with a club-record £20m offer for the 27-year-old, but the clock is ticking.

"Liverpool and Chelsea are the targets to catch and Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan make me feel like we can compete again". That is obvious proof that he is capable of scoring loads of goals for Arsenal football club.

Hazard has 18 months remaining on his deal but an approach from Real Madrid over the summer is imminent.

And the Frenchman denied Dortmund have asked for Giroud, 31, as a makeweight.

The French manager, Didier Deschamps still prefers to play Giroud as his first-choice striker over Arsenal teammate Alexandre Lacazette, a sign of the big man's quality and status with his national team. "We'll see what happens with that".
