Gunners boss targets more recruits
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is expecting some late transfer activity at the Emirates Stadium before the window closes in a week's time.
Wenger is keen to add further new faces to his squad after losing Robin van Persie and Alex Song to Manchester United and Barcelona respectively this summer.
The Frenchman has drafted in Santi Cazorla, Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, but ideally the Gunners manager would like to recruit an additional midfielder to replace Song and a defender.
Wenger told the club's official website: "Some things can still happen.
"I don't want make a promise that I cannot keep. It does not only depend on me. But there still could be some action on the transfer market - ins and outs.
"We are working in the market. We'll see what we can do.
"The transfer market is open for two months and yet for one month and three weeks it is nearly closed. It wakes up completely in the last week and then every minute becomes important.
"Everybody has played for time for seven or eight weeks and now suddenly everyone is in a hurry. And that is when the most intense activity happens."
