Transfer news: The Gunners will sell before they buy
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will be selling players before he invests in his squad again.
The Gunners have already signed Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud but, before they add more new faces, they will look to sell first.
“We are still looking to add one or two players but it depends also on how many go out because we have to respect the squad number,” Wenger toldArsenal Player.
“It’s important to respect that so before we get players in we have to get some players out. That has not happened yet, the market is very quiet.
“I cannot tell you anything concrete about the situation [regarding those who might leave] because if they are not finding clubs they will stay here and be players of the squad. At the moment I cannot give you any concrete or clear indication.”
