Gunners boss wary of World Cup moves

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed he has been talking to some of his transfer targets. Wenger is keen to freshen up his squad this summer and he hopes to do his business before the World Cup kicks off. Arsenal have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks and Wenger admits plans are well underway about bringing new faces to Emirates Stadium. "I have definite transfer targets and I have been talking to people but I will not tell you to who," Wenger told the Arsenal Matchday Programme.

Anxiety

Wenger is keen to do his business early and he is wary of buying players after the World Cup because their price tag can inflate. "I believe the earlier you settle your team the better it is and the less anxiety you have," added Wenger. "Overall I feel it is very dangerous to buy on [the strength of] the tournament because sometimes there are players who are fresh and have not played the whole season. "Everyone can have three weeks of glory as a football player. Ten years is a bit different."
