Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he needs to buy a new defender, according to reports.
Wenger has admitted long-term injury to Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista has forced Arsenal to enter the transfer market for an experienced centre back.
Wenger said “I do” when asked if he expected to sign a centre back before the start of the season and added: “We are still in the market for players, at the front and back. Unfortunately we are not alone.
“Certainly I don’t count that Per will be back before the end of the year. I will miss him deeply. He is a leader on the pitch and off. We lose a heavyweight in our dressing room.”
