Those Arsenal fans concerned that Arsene Wenger might not look to fix our obvious problems this transfer window will be pleased to know that Wenger is already on the prowl.

Arsene Wenger has identified the midfield area as the area most in need of repair.

Speaking in his programme notes ahead of the victory over Portsmouth yesterday and also on French channel ‘Canal Plus’ Wenger spoke of his plans.

‘The transfer window opens (on Thursday) and, although we are not close to signing anyone at the moment, if we do buy I think what we need is maybe someone with a bit of experience,’

‘We already have many young players so, if we buy, it will be somebody who is ready to play straight away. A loan deal could also be a possibility.’

‘Cesc is a long way from playing again, so are Tomas Rosicky and Theo Walcott, and these are three creative players that we count on at the start of the season. So what we might need is someone who can create a little spark.’

‘I don’t need to announce a name, because when you do that there is 50 per cent less chance of making the signing. But I need a creative midfielder and eventually another midfielder, because we are short.’

So rest assured, Wenger DOES see what we see, and we’ve now got a nice Premier League break for him to fix it.
