Arsenal´s recent meltdown has failed to convince manager Arsene Wenger he must embark on a summer spending spree.

The Gunners are facing up to a third successive season without silverware having been dumped out of the Champions League to Liverpool in midweek and falling behind in the race for the Premier League title. Critics have suggested Wenger must loosen the purse strings when the transfer window opens, but the Frenchman retains complete faith in his current squad.

"We will continue to do what we´ve done. I will buy but not too much in the summer," he said. "My priority is to keep this team together because we are still young, especially in some departments. If we can add one more body we will do so, not one in each department - just one experienced guy."
