Wenger: we’re not close to making a signingArsene Wenger says a lot can change ‘in an hour’ as the transfer window counts down to its 11opm closure tomorrow night, but also that there are no deals close to completion right now.
Speaking to Arsenal Player the boss was quizzed about transfers, and said admitted the club were exploring options, “Are we active? Yes. But are we close to sign anybody? No.
“There’s not long now that’s true. First, the situation was going like always in a transfer market – week by week. In the last two weeks it goes day by day, now it goes hour by hour.
“In any hour anything can happen or change but at the moment, unfortunately, we are not signing anybody.”
I guess much depends on your definition of ‘close’. Talks could be ongoing with a number of targets, and we saw on deadline day last January how quickly things can happen with the signing of Nacho Monreal.
Let’s keep fingers crossed.
