Arsene admits he will be active before transfer window closes
Arsène Wenger admits he will be “active” before Monday’s transfer deadline, but that he will not be rushed into any panic signings.
“It’s harder to buy top, top, top players, yes,” he said. “Many clubs are on the market and everybody knows each other.
“The last few days are poker games. There’s a lot of lies there in the few days, everybody is interested in the same player even if you’re the only one who wants the player.
“[When you are experienced] you can call it a bluff when it is a bluff.”
On signing a striker following Olivier Giroud’s injury at Everton, Wenger says:
“You have decided that I have to buy strikers – I have not necessarily decided that! I promise you that if we sign somebody, we’ll inform you,” he said.
“I will be actively involved but on the last day of the window. I will of course be on alert until the last-minute of the transfer deadline.”
