Every single press conference Arsène Wenger is asked about transfers.

Who’s coming in? Who’s going out? Why is nobody coming and why isn’t Flamini going?

The Premier League season is now underway and the manager is more focused on getting a good result at Crystal Palace on Sunday than finding a deal in the transfer market before the window shuts.

“It is Friday today and we play on Sunday,” the manager explained in his pre-match press conference. “So it is important that we focus on our performance on Sunday.”

Wenger has been accused of not wanting to spend but recent signings of Mesut Özil, Alexis Sánchez, Calum Chambers, Mathieu Debuchy, Gabriel and Petr Čech go against that idea. Meanwhile Čech arguably cost the Gunners three points last weekend, so signings clearly aren’t always the answer.

Throughout this and every transfer window Wenger has said he is happy to spend on a player who will improve his team, but it is tough to find the right man when every top club in Europe is trying to do the same thing. The pool of to level players isn’t very big. if the club finds someone, they’ll make a signing.

“We are as open after that bad result as we were before,” Wenger said. “We were working very hard and we are focused to do what can strengthen our squad. The availability is not big.”

If Arsenal find someone of sufficient quality who can be signed then the club will do it. They’ve shown as much in recent transfer windows.

There are still two and a half weeks before this transfer window shuts, so we’re just going to have to wait and see what develops.

Right now Sunday’s game is the most important thing.
