Mirror make story out of nothing – Wenger won’t sign left-back

The Mirror have taken a single quote from Arsene Wenger somewhat out of context to suggest he is planning to sign a left-back today, but I’m pretty sure he isn’t.
The boss was questioned after last night’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool, which saw Kieran Gibbs limp off to be replaced by the unreliable Andre Santos at left-back. In his press conference, he said Gibbs would be out for three weeks, which prompted questions about whether Wenger would be happy to have Santos as backup or if he will look for a replacement.
The Mirror article ran the quote:

“I’ll see what I can do. It is a thigh strain and that rules him out for the next three weeks. Of course it is a big blow because Gibbs was a big player for us going forward and in the game we want to play it is a shame he is out for three weeks.”

Never mind the...
