Arsene Wenger has hinted he will make one more signing following the arrival of Mikael Silvestre.

But refuses to confirm whether it is Aston Villa's Gareth Barry

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted he will make one more signing this summer following the surprise arrival of Mikael Silvestre. The French defender completed his move to Arsenal on Wednesday, although Gareth Barry's name continues to be linked with the club. The England international had been expected to join Liverpool this summer, but with the clubs yet to agree a fee, The Gunners have been linked with a cheeky bid. Although Wenger is refusing to publicly state Barry is on his wanted list, but he has hinted he is looking to make one more signing before the transfer window closes. "I can surprise you sometimes, as I got one in whom you did not expect, and there still might be one more player coming in," he stated.

No names

"You know the position, but I cannot tell you much more. There is interest always (in players). I do not want to give you any names. "But we are not in a desperate situation because we have [Alexandre] Song back from the Olympics, [Abou] Diaby does not look too far away and hopefully we can have good news from [Tomas] Rosicky in the next two weeks. "We are not quite short, but one more body is possible." When asked if Barry's ineligibility for the group stages of this season's UEFA Champions League had created a problem for Wenger, he replied: "Not really. "I believe that once somebody cannot play for you in Europe it devalues the player for the season. It doesn't necessarily stop you from buying the player."
