Wenger up for Gunners challenge
Arsene Wenger says he finds the challenge of rebuilding his Arsenal side exciting, following the departure of key players.
Not for the first time the Gunners have lost star men this summer with Robin van Persie and Alex Song heading for the exit door, but Wenger has been busy when drafting in the likes of Santi Cazorla, Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski. Wenger says he would prefer to keep his star men but enjoys building a new side and believes his current crop of players are very close to clicking into place. "To rebuild is exciting as well. We can click very quickly because we look like a team on the pitch at the moment," he said. "I believe that we look a team on the pitch and a team who is ready to fight together. "We have not scored and have not been completely at our best going forward, but that will happen eventually. Of course if you gave me a choice I would have preferred to keep Van Persie. "But if you lose a player who scores 30 goals, there are not 100 players in the world who can score 30 goals a season at this level."
