Arsene Wenger has refused to be drawn on potential summer transfer targets, insisting Arsenal's last four games are all that matters.

Arsenal face four crucial games - three in the Premier League and one in the FA Cup - which could determine whether their season is a failure or a success.

The Gunners currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League but are just one point ahead of an inspired Everton side, who have won eight of their last nine games.

Finishing fifth would mean no Champions League football at the Emirates next season, leaving a massive hole in Arsenal's finances. Wenger is also under immense pressure to deliver Arsenal's first major trophy in nine years when they take on Hull City in the Fa Cup final on May 17th.

However, Arsenal fans are already turning their attention towards the summer transfer window with many demanding unprecedented investment in the squad.

Arsenal need to reinforce several areas in the squad, none more so than up front and one name constantly linked with a move to London Colney is Loic Remy.

The French international has been impressive for Newcastle this season, where he is on loan from Queens Park Rangers. Remy is expected to leave Loftus Road permanently even if QPR get promoted back to the Premier League and Wenger was reportedly keen to sign him.

However, Wenger insisted in his press conference today that he is not interested in looking at transfers until the season has finished.

Speaking about Remy ahead of Monday's game against Newcastle, where the player is in contention to return from injury, Wenger said:  "He is a good striker. But we are focused on the end of the season, not on strikers."
