Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has assured impatient fans that the club will not compromise quality this time but will look for super quality.
The Frenchman has taken notice of fans’ frustrations over the club’s dealings in the transfer market this summer and is hoping to provide positive news soon.
“Ideally I would have finished all [our business] but it doesn't work like that,” Wenger told Arsenal.com. “We work very hard, we are non-stop working throughout the summer. I am positive because we have good quality and a style of play that is known by the players. So we want to add not quality but super quality.”
Since the opening of the June window, Wenger has signed Gervinho from French side Lille and youngster Carl Jenkinson from League One side Charlton Athletic. Wenger, however, has admitted that he is looking forward to strengthen the team even further.
The manager said that it takes time to identify a player and agree to all the terms and fees to get him out of a club, but the impatience of the fans can be understood.
“No, not at the moment,” Wenger replied when asked if the club is close to a new signing. “We hope to give you some good news soon. Next week, something might happen.”
The club has targeted Southampton’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on loan along with Gary Cahill of Bolton and Phil Jagielka of Everton, according to an Arsenal.com report.
