Wenger: I will only sign exceptional players for Arsenal in January

The Gunners boss is under pressure to add to his squad following his worst start to a season with the club, but is only in the market for signings who will make a real difference.

The story is too old to be commented.

"We are in the market, but only if we find players who will really strengthen us..."

shouldn't be too difficult tbh.

We can only dream........Anyways I still think our priority should be a new CDM, after that anything Wenger signs should be ok.

He didn't say exceptionally good. Just exceptional.

Gervinho for example has an exceptional forehead which is why he was signed.

So in other words he's saying he wont buy anybody

Blackdeath_6631972d ago

yeah he basically said "we will buy players not"

Dungus1972d ago

Exactly what I was thinking. The guy needs 100 million quid and he needs to want to spend it all on 4 or 5 "exceptional" players who need to want to come. And he doesn't. And they don't. And they won't. The end.

Falcao to Arseanl, I'll bet anyone 5 bucks. That or Cavani.

pompombrum1972d ago

Falcao to Arsenal? Or even Cavani? Arsenal wouldn't be able to meet their wage demands.. they'd offer Falcao something like 120k while someone like Chelsea/City would offer him 200k+.

Theo11301972d ago

You assume falcao is only concerned with money. He's a different player, he loves challenges and hit career has proven that. From the time he was at river plate.

arsenal cant afford Falcao

"I will only sign exceptional players for Arsenal in January."

We all know this means 2 or 3 mid table French league footballers. Move along.

Some of Arsenal's best players in the EPL era (Henry, Vieira, Sagna, Pires & Nasri come to mind)were products of the French League, br'ah.
