Arsene Wenger says he’s looking for players who can play in a number of positions as the transfer window heads inside its final 7 days.
With the likes of Mathieu Flamini linked, who can do a job in midfield and at both full back positions, the Arsenal manager says such qualities are valuable.
“We need a player who is versatile, who can play in different positions in midfield, because at the moment we are a little bit stretched. That is what I work at – the right additions. It is not just about additions.”
Wenger also spoke about the market in general, and admitted Arsenal have had problems closing deals throughout the summer, putting that down to how competitive it is when you’re trying to sign the best players.
“The market has been difficult for two reasons. One, I have quality players and, two, the competition for players is absolutely massive in the international market.
“Before, we were privileged – we were a bit more lonely out there. Now, everybody knows everybody and it is more difficult.”
Reports this morning say that Flamini’s agent, the infamous Darren Dein, met with Dick Law to sort out a contract yesterday.
