Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed he still wants to sign a striker and a defender this summer but will take his time in doing so.

Earlier in the summer, the French tactician had revealed he is looking to sign a maximum of three first team players this summer but has only completed the signing of Granit Xhaka along with two youngsters.

Wenger has now pledged to spend more money this summer should the right players be available and he is keen to strengthen his defensive and attacking positions.

“We look still for an offensive position and defensive position,” Wenger said, as quoted by ESPN.

“We are very active on the transfer market but it’s a long time to go. Everybody has a handbrake on at the moment. It’s a little bit of a poker game until mid-August in my opinion. So we might have to be good at poker.”

Arsenal are currently being linked with Olympic Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette and it is believed Wenger is prepared to spend as much as £40m for his services. The club have also been linked with the likes of Kostas Manolas and Kalidou Koulibaly as Wenger reportedly searches for a long term replacement to Per Mertesacker. Wenger’s statement is definitely an exciting news for the Gooners who are keen to see the club spend big this summer.

    Wenger proved beyond any reasonable doubt that he is a bad manager for Arsenal . On the field he failed for the last fifteen years to win back the premier league and during the last twenty years he failed to make any progress in the champion league . Wenger during the last fifteen years failed to sign a real world class a striker . Wenger during this transfer window and despite of the fact that Arsenal have hundreds of million he failed to convince the real credible world class players to join Arsenal. All Arsenal targeted players are signed by the new managers of Manchester United , Manchester City and Chelsea after few weeks of their appointment . Wenger in short became a terrible obstacle for Arsenal development. At least till the end of this transfer window somebody else should take the responsibility of signing players for Arsenal whatever it cost because Arsenal is by no means are a lesser club than those who are signing our targeted player. The only problem is that Arsenal hav a wrong manager who worship money.
