Wenger is maintaining that he will not ‘panic buy’, even though the summer transfer window is soon drawing to a close.

Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur have spent big this summer but Wenger insists that he does not feel under pressure to make any last minute rash buys.

"We will not panic buy, that is for sure. You can believe me. It is not in my strengths to panic," said Wenger, who expects both midfielders Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey to be available to play in the north London derby on Sunday.

Arsenal will, however, be missing Lukas Podolski, who has been ruled out for up to ten weeks with a hamstring injury. The German international will be joining Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mikel Arteta on the sidelines.

This big blow for Wenger has seen his options further reduced, after the pressure was easing up on him to make a signing, Podolski's hamstring injury has dumped him right back in the transfer market.

Frustrated fans want to see more players being brought into the club but Wenger reiterated that he will not make and last minute panic buys.

"You need good players in every position, and especially you need an attitude and way to play the game," he added.

"The players here know the way we want to play and that is important, If we can add players who can integrate with that style of play we will do it’.

Arsenal, who failed in bids for Gonzalo Higuain, Luis Suarez and Yohan Cabaye have had a far from fruitful transfer window. Wenger expressed his frustration at the lack of signings Arsenal have made in this transfer window.

"I cannot tell you more than that we are on the market. Everybody knows, the whole world knows that now," he said following the club's win over Fenerbahce earlier this week.

But no rash signings will be considered by the north London club as the Arsenal manager stated, "We work very hard on that, if we cannot we will not do anything stupid just for the sake of saying that we have done something".
