Wenger: Another forward? No

Arsene Wenger says that Arsenal do not hold plans to purchase another forward, amid continued links to Mario Balotelli.

The Gunners have been speculated as ready to reignite earlier interest in the Milan striker with an offer of €20m.

However, the English side’s manager has reflected Adriano Galliani’s message on the matter.

“In attack we are in place, with the purchase of Alexis Sanchez and the confirmation of Giroud,” Wenger has told reporters this week.

“Up front we don't need any more. It's not especially for numbers.

“We need a goalkeeper for sure and, after that, it depends on how our midfielders get through without injuries until the start of the season.

“Maybe at centre-back we'll still bring one in.”
