Wenger confirms interest in signings after Leicester draw

Arsene Wenger has confirmed he hopes to do some business on transfer deadline day, having watched his side draw 1-1 with Leicester on Sunday, reports the Daily Star.

The Gunners are without Olivier Giroud until the new year, and started with Yaya Sanogo at the King Power Stadium.

The young French forward struggled to make an impact however, and Wenger is under pressure to bring in a new forward before the deadline tomorrow.

“We are active in the window, we are working hard to find a solution,” he said.

“We try very hard. Nobody can ever predict what can happen in the last 24 hours.

“But if we had to buy a player every time you didn’t win a game it would be too easy.

“In the Premier League it is difficult to win games. That is the way it is.”

Wenger conceded that a draw with newly promoted Leicester was a fair result.

“We were unlucky we conceded the goal when Laurent Koscielny was injured,” he added. “I don’t think we would have conceded otherwise.

“But a draw was a fair result and we didn’t create enough today – clear-cut chances.

“We lacked a bit of creativity and sharpness. We had a tough game against Besiktas in the Champions League, it is not an excuse but we were a bit jaded.

“I don’t think any of the injuries we picked up are a problem.”
