Arsene Wenger has moved to ease Arsenal supporters concerns about a lack of new faces at the club by promising to spend after his side put one foot in the Champions League group stages last night.
The Frenchman came under intense scrutiny after the club's 3-1 opening day defeat at home to Aston Villa, with angry supporters urging him to spend some money improving the squad.
And it seems the supporters may finally get their wish as Wenger has claimed the club will strengthen.
He said: "We tried to bring one in, but we are working on that. You have to understand there is still a long way to go.
"The transfer market starts for me now and a lot of activity will happen between now and September 2."
Free transfer Yaya Sanogo is the only new addition to the Gunners' squad so far this season and Arsenal have been dwarfed in the transfer market by their great rivals Spurs, who have made four signings and hope to complete more before the deadline.
However, while Wenger has promised new faces, he has conceded that the high-profile transfer of Liverpool striker Luis Suarez will now not happen.
"There is absolutely no chance of that," Wenger added.
