New signing expected before Twente return leg
By Richard Clarke
Arsène Wenger will not be signing anyone before the Premier League kicks-off on Saturday but he will ‘certainly’ bring in a new face before home game with Twente on August 27.
The Arsenal manager has suggested for some time that he could add to the squad - however he will not be rushed.
After the 2-0 win in Holland on Wednesday night the Frenchman said: “Will something be done ahead of the second leg? Certainly yes, but before Saturday, no.”
However, in the wake of that welcome win at Twente, Wenger feels his squad is actually larger than people realise.
“If you look at the number of players we had out, you can say it was very positive for us,” he said. “We did not have Diaby, Fabregas, Rosicky, Nasri, Kolo Toure, Eduardo and Senderos while Song as at the Olympics.
“We missed seven or eight players out so for me our squad looks big because the players who were here did well.”
