Arsene Wenger has stated that he is relaxed over his transfer strategy and feels that his squad is strong enough to compete for silverware this season.

The Gunners have added Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud to their squad this summer, but have lost Robin van Persie and Alex Song.

The French coach is expected to potentially dip into the market on the last day of the transfer window, but Wenger is happy with how things have panned out for the north London side.

“I am relaxed. We have enough players, that is for sure, but you want always to improve your squad,” The Telegraph report Wenger as saying.

“We have resources available so if it is not happening now it will happen in December. But we believe strongly that we have the quality in our squad to do very well.

“We bought Cazorla, Podolski and Giroud so you cannot say we have not bought but, when you listen to people, you always have to buy more.

“Getting our injured players back is the best way for us to strengthen the squad. We do not just want to bring average players in. Spending in itself is not a quality. Buying good players is a quality, better players than you have is a quality,” he concluded.

    its now obvious what mr wenger wants to do wit arsenal. Instead of buying quality player that wil compete favourably wt other top clubs, he is busy pricing rejected dead woods in the like of essien, malouda and sturidge. Pls mr wenger, d squad isn’t good enough, buy players dat wl bring a change. Arsenal is not a dumping ground for christ sake!

      Wenger obviously feels he has enough talent coming through the ranks to cover for the loss of Alex Song.
