Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning to make further signings in the summer transfer window but has seemingly ruled out a move for AC Milan's Mario Balotelli.

Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy have already joined ahead of the new campaign and the Gunners continue to be linked with making a string of new additions before the season starts on 16 August.

Nice goalkeeper David Ospina is reportedly close to joining Arsenal this summer to replace Lukasz Fabianski and provide competition for the No.1 spot alongside Wojciech Szczesny and Wenger has all but confirmed the move by declaring his intent to sign a stopper.

"I'm very happy with what I could do until now, it's not over, there's still a long way to go," he told reporters after the friendly victory over Boreham Wood.

"You're never sure you can do what you want but we are still out there to strengthen our squad. I will bring in a goalkeeper for sure."

Among the players to be regularly mentioned regarding a move to Arsenal is former City striker Balotelli, though his club Milan claim they have had no contact from the FA Cup holders.

And Wenger has ruled out a move for the Italian international or any other forward by saying his remaining business will focus on strengthening other areas of the team.

"It depends whether our midfielders get through now until the start of the season without injuries," he added.

"Up front we don't need any more, maybe I will still bring in one centre-back. I will bring in a goalkeeper for sure and we are still out there to strengthen our squad.

"You do the deals when it's possible, this time we could do it early and I am very happy with what I have done until now. It's easier to prepare, but we are not the only club who have done business.

"Some other clubs have also done business – Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool have bought great players and the competition should be interesting again next season."

Should Arsenal suffer injuries to their midfield then Real Madrid's Sami Khdira appears likely to be an option but when asked about the Germany World Cup winner, Wenger refrained from being specific.

"Look, I can't give you any names," he explained.

"What is good is that [Arsenal's German internationals] won the World Cup so their confidence should be stronger. Winning makes you only stronger and more confident and hopefully we'll benefit from that next season."
