Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger defended the club’s decision to not buy anyone this transfer window, as he addressed the media ahead of big clash against Stoke City this weekend. ‘The Gunners’ only made one signing, adding great goalkeeper Petr Cech to their first-team squad. Arsenal were the only side in the European Soccer’s top five leagues not to sign an outfield player. But ‘The Gunners’ coach said that despite lack of transfers his team is ready to fight for the English soccer Premier League.

Giroud not good enough?

Wegner insisted despite looking deep into players, there were no footballers who were a perfect fit for North Londoners.

Arsenal tried to sign one of the greatest attackers in the world, Karim Benzema, but the French forward said, that he is going nowhere. Arsene Wenger said, that transfers are not the only option to make your team stronger. If you are trying to buy only the best players available it is hard to be happy signing average ones. 

Wenger said that he is confident that his team have enough quality to compete on every field and he is happy that transfer window is over, so we can now focus on the soccer.

One area of the squad that many Arsenal fans think that is to weak is central attack. An injury of Englishman Danny Welbeck has left French forward Olivier Giroud as the club’s only fit striker. There are many questions about his game, and many journalist and soccer experts think that Giroud is not good enough for Arsenal to compete for the title.

But Arsene Wenger is confident, that his team can win with everyone and every player in his team can help Giroud to score goals and win matches. Wenger added that he also have Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott, who can play upfront in the first squad.

Wenger backed Giroud

In four games of the new season Arsenal has scored only three gaols, but only one of them was scored but Arsenal player. Much of that is down to the stuttering start made to the season by Olivier Giroud. French internation has had a terrible time playing for his country during international break as his own supporters booed him after the game against Serbia.

Arsene Wenger has backed his man by saying that he believe in Giroud and he is happy, that he can work with him every single day. He want to make him better and that’s why he signed him in 2012.
