Wenger confirms more signings will follow Chamakh

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is actively seeking further additions to his squad following the recent capture of striker Marouane Chamakh. Happy enough with the striking talent now at his disposal, the Frenchman will now turn his attention to reinforcing other areas. "We have enough players upfront and we now look into other areas. We are looking at the moment, getting information, scouting, we are working very hard and there will be one or two more signings that is for sure" Wenger told the club's official website. The deal to extend Sol Campbell's contract at Arsenal is far from complete and with Celtic showing strong interest, the defender's future at the Emirates is far from certain and he could join both Gallas and Silvestre out the exit door, leaving Arsenal threadbare at the back, with Thomas Vermaelen and Johan Djourou as the only realistic options for next season. Wenger has also publicly defended his midfield and suggested there will be no need to sign anyone to damage the progress made by Song, Diaby and Denilson. However Arsene has led the media one way and shimmied the other on many occasions in order to keep his real intended plans private, and rightly so. A world class keeper is literally be the number one priority. Only one man for me, Robert Green. Playing behind a defence which makes the Arsenal back four look water tight, the England World Cup hopeful has once again come out with due credit following consistent performances and overall a personally successful season. For £6m, he would add vital experience which would prove beneficial too for the player earmarked as the future Arsenal number one, Wojciech Szczesny. I still believe Wenger will sign more than the two he tells of, and I wouldn't be surprised to see another attacking player who can provide exceptional delivery into the box and take advantage of Chamakh's outstanding aerial ability. Whatever happens, Arsenal fans can be sure Wenger will deliver this summer, and it may just be the ticket to keep his captain at the club.
