Roberto Martinez targets further signings


Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez is still looking to add another two or three new players before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month.

Martinez has already brought in defenders Antolin Alcaraz and Ronnie Stam, midfielder James McArthur and striker Mauro Boselli this summer, but is keen to add further depth to his options.

The Spaniard told the Evening Post:"We are trying to bring two or maybe three players in before the end of the transfer window.

"It's a long time to go until January, when you can next do something about your squad.

"I just feel that, even though I am pleased with the quality we have here, we need to make sure we have good strength in depth and numbers.

"It is hard at this stage of the season, but we have been following a number of players, working extremely hard and hopefully something will happen.

"If they come off, then great. If not, at least all the major targets we were after are already at the football club and that is great reward for the amount of work we have put in."
