Arsenal fans can now expect at least one top quality signing before the end of the summer transfer window.

The Gunners have already signed up veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech from Chelsea for £11million - a deal which former teammate Frank Lampard believes could be the spring board to capturing a first EPL title since 2004.

But manager Arsene Wenger has said the possibility exists that there could be more additions to the squad.

“If we can still add some quality, we will do it,” said Wenger, while talking to Arsenal Player.

Arsenal have since transformed from being a “selling club” to pulling off marquee signings for the past two seasons.

Mesut Ozil joined from Real Madrid in 2013 for £42m and Alexis Sanchez was brought in last season from Barcelona for £35m.

Wenger is leaving nothing to chance as he hopes to add as much quality as possible, recalling the effect injuries played in the course of last season.

“We lost (Mesut) Ozil and (Olivier) Giroud for long periods last year and they contributed a lot in the second half of the season. Let’s hope all these players will be fit and available.”

“The best way to strengthen other areas of the team is to get the players who did not play a lot last year and keep them fit.”

Arsenal have already signed up two new fitness coaches James Haycock and Barry Solan and hopefully Wenger would be able to get the best out of his squad in the new season without having to worry much about injuries.

    What does Mr Wenger means by If we can?? Why can’t we when every other club even not the top six all signed new quality players while Mr Wenger only got Petr Che ch for 11 millions and says if we can . Regarding the players Arsenal need it is clear to every body that Giraud can not score 20+ gools a season nor Wallbeck . Mtertsacker At the back has past his best and represent a weak point at the back as well Arsenal need a new Vieira defensive midfielder. World class players in these positions are available for Arsenal in the trasfer market so why if we can ???!!!

      Please do suggest name/s of world class defensive midfield player as Viera that is available out there for the right price and willing to come to Arsenal. There are quality players signed by other clubs as mentioned, but some players are more quality than others and that’s what make them world class. There is no need to add numbers as other teams are currently doing, better wait, study and grab the type of player that will positively improve the team tremendously. This time around, let’s think of Arsene Wenger as a patient vulture, ready to pounce at the slightest opportunity. It gets more exciting towards end of July and beginning of August.
      In the last two seasons, Arsenal’s case has been ‘what if’.
      What if the key players were not injured and were all available during the second half of 2013/2014 season?
      What if they key players were not injured and were all available during the first half of 2014/2015 season?
