Arsene Wenger has stressed that he will not act hastily in the market to have his transfer business done early, but wait for the opportune moment to strike.

The Gunners have been very active in the market off late, signing Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in back to back years, along with squad players by the likes of Mathieu Debuchy, Calum Chambers and Danny Welbeck, who have all come good over the course of the season.

The Frenchman stressed that Sanchez's acquisition in the middle of the transfer window was possible because Barcelona had completed the signing of Luis Suarez and were willing to sell to cover up for their losses. However, with Ozil, the Gunners had to wait until Madrid completed the signing of Gareth Bale, before being allowed to open talks with the player, whose transfer was completed on deadline day.

The Gunners are expected to add to their midfield this summer and also a player who can add 10-15 goals to the tally, something which the manager stressed on earlier in the season.

"What you want to do more than do it early is to do it right, put it right and make the right decisions. Sometimes the opportunity comes up early. Last year we signed Alexis in the middle of the transfer window," Wenger told Arsenal's official website.

"You have to take the opportunities when they come up but that's not only decided by your desire, sometimes it's created by the club that sells the player as well.

"Alexis was available because they [Liverpool] bought Luis Suarez. They could only buy Suarez at the beginning of July, so you have to always be on alert and do the business, fix your target and do it as well as possible. You're not the only one who can decide that.

"I don't believe [there will be a lot of business in England] because the number of players who can strengthen the Premier League clubs is not massively important a number.

"It's not like you go out there and you can just pick players and buy today. To strengthen a Premier League team you need top quality and that's not easy," the manager added.
