Wenger has concentrated on signing Theo Walcott to a new long-term deal and now feels that as the player moves closer to resigning, he can begin to focus his attention on strengthening elsewhere.

“Cavani is a player that I like. Will he cost a lot of money? That’s for sure. Nobody would deny that. Our banker lives just next to me at the moment and he is ready if we find the right player,” quipped Wenger.

Commenting on his interest in Zaha – who is also the object of Sir Alex Ferguson’s attention – he said, “We are looking at him, but at the moment we have not made any bid for him.

“I don’t know if Manchester United are in for him. Anyway, if you call any club for any player, they will tell you Man United, Milan, Real Madrid are as well in for him, but it is always difficult to know if it is true or not.”

The Gunners boss is well-known for his frugal attitude toward player recruitment, however he might be forced to bring in an expensive new face to strengthen the midfield.

Speaking of the best way to manoeuvre in the transfer window, he said, “The prices always go up at the start of the transfer market and go down in the last week.

“Sometimes as well they go up in the last week, but it depends. Most of the time they go down in the last week and you know as well that 90 per cent of transfer activity happens in the last week, if not in the last 48 hours.”

      Thanks for the shout-out. The mere fact that he mentioned their names – and added his comments – above a hundred other top players is proof enough that they could be a priority… possibly a ‘high’ priority. I think that calling it ‘nonsense’ is in itself ‘speculative nonsense.’

    lol calm down @mint! I do get your point and frustration though. I wish Wenger would just do what we absolutely must do if we want to be the club we should be and sign top talent only we would be using money we have fairly earned through success (once lol) unlike the two cheats who just follow our scouts around and come in with some rich crooks cash to try and buy trophies.
