Arsenal boss remains calm on transfers after defeat.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to panic buy this summer, after suffering a 4-3 defeat at home to Liverpool on Sunday.

The Gunners were 4-1 down to the Reds, before fighting back to close the gap to just the 1 goal. There were audible chants at 4-1 of “You don’t know what you’re doing” aimed at the Frenchman, and at the full time whistle there were boos from some supporters.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Wenger re-inforced the need for some of their current first team players to return from injury, and said the club would only make smart signings:

“We need players back, I have said many times that we are working very hard to get one or two players in. There is not much time left, but it has to make sense and be quality.” Said Wenger.

“It’s about identifying the players and getting the right availability.”

Wenger has only made two notable signings this summer, bringing in Granit Xhaka and Rob Holding, who both featured in the defeat at the Emirates. And after missing out on Jamie Vardy earlier in the window, the club have struggled to find what Wenger would call a suitable signing.

The window closes on Wednesday 31st.
