With Arsenal set to end yet another season with nothing to show for it, manager Arsene Wenger needs – according to many – to sign new players.
Speaking to Arsenal TV Online about what his plans are for the summer, the Frenchman admitted that the Gunners always have names in mind as they evaluate – on a weekly basis – all the reports submitted by their scouts from all over the world.
But, the Arsenal boss added that it’s still early to speak about who could join during the summer transfer window adding that the focus at the moment is to do well in the last four games of the season.
And on the return of Thierry Henry who will be in action with the New York Red Bulls in this summer’s Emirates Cup, Wenger concluded by saying that it’s always nice to welcome an old friend back, concluding by saying how important the Cup is, during pre-season.
On Thursday, Wenger said:
[Transfers?] We always have names in mind because we have our scouting reports every week, we have scouts all over the world but I feel it’s too early to speak about that because it’s important to focus highly on the end of the season.
[The Emirates Cup?] It’s good news to have our friend Thierry Henry back, overall I am happy. It’s always a massive experience and a great experience to have the Emirates Cup, always a big joy to experience that.
