Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has declared that the chequebook remains open.
It is said that the Frenchman won’t rule out a late summer signing.
“We are like you [the media], we listen to the names. Sometimes I look at who we buy in the media but at the moment we are not in an emergency case,” said Wenger.
“We have the players we want but we are open as well to any opportunity until the end of the transfer window, who can strengthen our defensive department in quality and number.
“I can’t tell you how likely I am [to make a signing], I just said I am open to doing it. It has to be linked with the needed quality. If you ask today the 20 top clubs in the world what they look for, they all look for the same positions. That means it is not necessarily out there.”
