Wenger look­ing to trim Arse­nal squad

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

PRE­MIER LEAGUE: Man­ager Arsene Wenger wants to slim down his Arse­nal squad be­fore mak­ing any fur­ther ad­di­tions.

Some of the north Lon­don club’s short­com­ings, par­tic­u­larly de­fen­sively, were ex­posed as they suf­fered a 1-0 de­feat at Stoke in the Pre­mier League on Satur­day.

Gun­ners man­ager Wenger has not ruled out more sign­ings be­fore the trans­fer win­dow closes at the end of the month, but his im­me­di­ate pri­or­ity is to move out un­wanted play­ers.

“I ex­pect to sell play­ers first,” the French­man said. “We have too many play­ers. It is not man­age­able.

“Many clubs are in this sit­u­a­tion – that is why the trans­fer mar­ket is quiet.”
