The Gunners have been heavily linked with moves for AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli, QPR ace Loic Remy, and former Bayern Munich star Mario Mandzukic.

But Wenger ended Gunners fans hopes of a big name striker coming to the Emirates this summer when he revealed today that he had no plans to sign a forward this summer.

Although Wenger has ruled out signing a new striker, the Frenchman insisted that there will be more new arrivals at the Emirates before the start of the season.

He said: "It depends whether our midfielders get through now until the start of the season without injuries.

"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.
