Wenger focused on selling, not buying, after Stoke defeat


Arsene Wenger says he’s more focused on trimming his squad rather than adding to it despite the 1-0 defeat to Stoke on Saturday evening.

The Arsenal manager declared himself unconvinced by the centre of defence, but seems to have no plans to make an addition there, preferring instead to shift some of the fringe members of the squad.

Asked post-game if he was looking to make any additions, Wenger said, “I expect to sell players first. That’s all.

“I expect players to go because we have too many players, it’s not manageable and many clubs are in this situation that’s why the transfer market is quiet.

“We have 33 players at the moment and that’s too many. I am not after a game like that just in a transfer mode.

“We are more disappointed. I am not thinking straight away to buy players tonight.”

There’s just about 11 days left of the transfer window, we suspect some movement will be necessary, both in and out.
