Arsene Wenger: These are my Arsenal transfer plans this summer

Arsene Wenger is that you? Unbelievable, Wenger is actually interested in signing players. The Frenchman is looking to add at least three signings to improve his side. The French boss has often been criticized for his lack of transfer activity. More so last season where he failed to sign a single outfield player in the summer.

He brought in Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech in an £11m deal from London rivals Chelsea.  Many thought that was a move in the right direction yet Wenger ended his plans there and didn’t add anyone else.

It was only in the January window when Wenger signed Egypt international Mohamed Elneny in an £8m deal from Swiss champions Basel. Despite a slow start, the 23-year-old has proven an important signing for The Emirates.

Arsenal still managed to knock of Tottenham Hotspur from second place on the final day of the Premier League season after a 4-0 victory over relegated Aston Villa as Spurs lost 5-1 at Newcastle United. Despite the result, Wenger is not to pleased with their standings and he is looking to bolster his squad in the summer.

His side finished a towering 10 points behind leaders Leicester City. More so Arsenal had premature exists in the Champions league and surprisingly the FA Cup.  These are signs of concern and Wenger is looking to head to the market to address these issues.

“We want to keep the squad stable over the summer while strengthening where possible,” Wenger said in his media conference.

“You want the group to be stimulated and to believe that we have improved the quality.

“I must say, we want to combine technical stability with players that we know want to play and know our game.

“Maybe bring in three players for example. That’s the right level for me.”

It remains to be seen which three players Wenger is referring to. The Gunners have been linked with a host of players over the closing periods of this season.  Could it be a striker? Arsenal surely have looked short of a world-class forward and Giroud is just not competent enough to lead a side looking to compete in four competitions.

Or maybe they will strengthen ins midfield as the departure of Rosicky and Arteta, midfield will need reinforcements . It will be an interesting window for Arsenal and let’s hope Wenger gets it right this time or it could be a new manager Arsenal add if he fails to produce next season.
