Arsene Wenger says Arsenal won't sign players quickly

Arsene Wenger insists he's not in any rush to get his transfer business done early this summer.

Arsenal saved their spending for the very last minute last year, shattering their club record to land Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid on deadline day.

The Gunners have been linked with a host of players as they look to prepare for a Premier League title tilt next season - but Wenger has warned fans not to expect fireworks once the window opens next month.

"In my experience, in a World Cup year, the transfer business does not get done early,' he said.

The Gunners have spent more days at the top of the table than anyone this season but fell well short in the title race. They have however secured a fourth-placed finish and Champions League qualification once more.

Manchester City look certain to claim their second Premier League title in three years, and Wenger concedes that where his side failed to stick with the pace, Manuel Pellegrini's side have succeeded.

"It looks like they’ll win it,' he said. 'It will need a miracle for them not to win. Congratulations to them. It was tight at the top and at the bottom.

'It was a season where City just won it, getting over the line. They won the marathon and they turned up in the last 100 yards. They turned up when it mattered. The turning point was the Everton game they won.

'It was not easy for them. Liverpool had an outstanding second part of the season. They are maybe the most unlucky team of the season. They were nearly there.

'We have been 128 days top of the league. So we have won the stamina league. But we faded in big games away from home.

'City scored 100 goals. We scored 66 at the moment. That’s where we have room for improvement.

Arsenal have one game of the season remaining against relegated Norwich. Wenger has confirmed that injured midfielder Jack Wilshere could make a return to action at Carrow Road.
