Arsene Wenger has said that he will refuse to panic buy in this summer's transfer window despite being offered 50 players a day.

Arsenal are facing the prospect of fielding youth team players against Tottenham on Sunday as a number of injuries, coupled with Wenger's inability to spend in the transfer market, has left his squad at breaking point.

The pressure is on to add world-class players before the window closes on Monday night but Wenger insists he will not be going on a mad trolley dash at the eleventh hour.

He did, however, claim that he is offered 50 players a day but ignores the calls as he is only looking for world-class players.

In his pre-match press conference he said: "We will not panic buy, that is for sure. You can believe me - it is not my strength to panic.

"I can give you my phone and you will see I have more than 50 players offered to me a day.

"I'm completely happy with what we do and how we do things. I don't share the criticisms that are made of my team."

Despite his insistence that he won't be rushing around the market, Wenger did admit that injuries have made it more important that he makes additions.

“When you think we lost players of the stature of Mikel Arteta, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski for three months basically before the season really starts, it’s very hard to take," he said.

"We are in a position where you want some more players.”

Wenger has also played down Tottenham transfer spending spree by saying their north London rivals are not guaranteed success following several big signings.

He added: "There is a technical risk when you buy more than three players because you unbalance a bit the stability of your squad.

"I know all the players they bought, but we will see how well they integrate. It's difficult to predict that. It can click fantastically well but there is a little risk."
