Wenger in no rush to replace Adebayor

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger has no plans to replace Emmanuel Adebayor after agreeing to sell the Arsenal striker to Manchester City for £25million

The Frenchman claimed the money raised by Adebayor's sale is his to invest but while he is keeping an eye on Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh, he is no hurry to spend.

"We're not on the verge of signing anybody but I'm able to spend the money if we find the right players," he said. "We're not in a hurry because we have a big squad. We'll see in pre-season if we need to make any additions."

He added: "If we need to add something we will. Chamakh is one of the players we've followed and if we need to go for a striker he's a possibility. We're keeping an eye on him.

"We have Rosicky and Eduardo back so we've lost a big striker but have gained two offensive players who were absent last season.

"We also have Nicklas Bendtner, Andrey Arshavin, Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott who can play striker. We have top players we can use as strikers."
