Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested that his side could still yet make signings, on the assumption that the injuries that his team have suffered turn out to be worse than the club expects them to be, as reported by the Daily Star.
Wenger has seen his side start the new season in somewhat decent form, but Tuesday night’s clash against Borussia Dortmund spoke for some realities surrounding his squad. Depleted by the injury to Mathieu Debuchy, a makeshift back line offered little in the way of resistance to Dortmund’s formidable attacking line, and the north London club slumped to a 2-0 loss.
With Debuchy injured, Arsenal had to turn to youngster Hector Bellerin to fill in at right back. While Bellerin was not particularly to blame for the loss, injuries elsewhere make the club’s options look increasingly poor, and many expect them to look into the free transfer market to aid the squad.
It is not as simple as that, according to Wenger, who said: “You cannot rule anything out because it depends on how long the injuries are and how many you have.
“At the moment, we are not in that need.”
