Wenger: 80 Percent Chance That We Sign

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has given a new update on the Gunners transfer activities and ruled out a transfer of Schalke midfielder, Julian Draxler.

Recent reports have indicated Arsenal are willing to pay £25m to secure Draxler’s signature, but Schalke didn’t want to move away from the £37m buyout clause.

Wenger has once again highlighted that games are won on the pitch and not in the transfer market and that London-based club is not buying Julian Draxler.

“No we are not actively pursuing him. The Draxler situation has been created by the newspapers, not by me. He will saty at Schalke,” Wenger said.

“What is concrete is that we are in a strong position in the league and we’re exceeding people’s expectations.

“Results are made on the football pitch and not in the transfer window.”

Wenger also confirmed that Aaron Ramsey will be out for another six weeks and Arsenal have an 80 percent chance of signing another midfielder.

"Aaron Ramsey will be out for four to six weeks. I count six weeks,” Wenger added.

“Nothing has changed- we are active but not looking.

"We are open-minded and active. We look at the opportunities. We still try to bring at least one body in.

“A loan signing is more likely especially because of Ramsey’s setback and Flamini’s suspension.

"We are short and I am confident we will bring someone in today. It is 80-20."

Would Arsenal fans be, if Wenger really doesn’t add another striker to his squad? Have your say in the comment section below.
