Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he could still make signings this summer as the likes of Yann M’Vila, Fernando Llorente and Lucas Biglia continue to be linked with moves to the club.

Wenger has brought in Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, and Santi Cazorla this summer, but has lost Robin van Persie to Manchester United, while midfielder Alex Song this past week sealed a £15million switch to Barcelona.

Arsenal were keen on signing Nuri Sahin but this week saw Liverpool swoop at the last minute to sign the Real Madrid midfielder on a season-long loan deal.

Rennes midfielder M’Vila is still believed to be on Wenger’s radar, while Anderlecht’s Lucas Biglia and Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente have also been linked with moves to Emirates Stadium.

The summer transfer window closes on Friday and Wenger has refused to rule out any late action in the transfer market.

“Some things can still happen,” he told the club’s official website.

“I don’t want make a promise that I cannot keep. It does not only depend on me. But there still could be some action on the transfer market – ins and outs.

“We are working in the market. We’ll see what we can do.

“The transfer market is open for two months and yet for one month and three weeks it is nearly closed. It wakes up completely in the last week and then every minute becomes important.

“Everybody has played for time for seven or eight weeks and now suddenly everyone is in a hurry. And that is when the most intense activity happens.”

Despite his comments, Wenger insists he is happy with the squad he currently has available.

“We have a good, stable, focused squad. We just have to show how good we are in the season,” he added.

“We have Abou Diaby and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back now while Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere are coming back.

“They are all international-stature players. I focus highly on that. If we get these players back in good shape then we have a very, very strong squad.”
