Manager Arsene Wenger has dampened the spirits of Arsenal fans by admitting that he does not know whether the club will be able to show off new signings before the start of the new season. Arsenal have so far seen their main rivals like Tottenham and Liverpool bring in new players to strengthen their teams. Arsenal, though, have made just one signing in the form of a free transfer to bring in an under 20 player. They have been linked with the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Wayne Rooney, and Luis Suarez in the last few weeks.

However, the club appear to be far off from making the signing due to various reasons. After failing to convince Higuain that a move to the Emirates stadium is the right for his career, Wenger has been trying frantically to bring in Suarez from Liverpool. Higuain made the move to Napoli only a few weeks ago, which has left Arsenal with a real conundrum before the start of the season. It looks highly unlikely that Suarez will be allowed to leave for a Premier league rival, while Chelsea appear to be in the box seat to sign Rooney from Manchester United.

“Let’s count on what is here first of all and if we can add something, we will do. It is very difficult to predict that it will all be sorted out before we play in the Champions League qualifier. What we want to do is have enough quality to achieve it with the players we have. If we can have some more in before that it is even better. We need to start strongly in the championship because that will have an influence on our performance in the Champions League,” said Wenger.

This would leave a lot of Arsenal fans frustrated prior to the start of the new season.
