Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims he and his staff are working 24 hours a day to sign new players. But he also seemed to suggest that he didn’t know who they should be trying to sign.
The Gunners boss was responding to vociferous criticism aimed at him following a 1-3 home defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the Premier League season. Supporters seized upon the lack of transfer activity this summer in the wake of the loss.
But Wenger claims he is working around the clock on transfers.
He said: “We are in the market, everybody knows we are ready to buy players, but until we buy players we have to win football games and it’s not an excuse not to win the game.
“We are there to spend money. People say: ‘Buy players, buy players, buy players’. But who? We analyse every single player in the world and work 24 hours a day for that. We are serious about it.
“Until we buy players we have to win football games.”
We’re not sure if that ‘But who?’ is rhetorical or not.
