When Arsene Wenger praised the current Arsenal squad recently, lots of Arsenal fans were furious because they took it to mean that he would not be signing any big name players again.If that really is the case, I will be as furious as anyone, but I an still fairly hopeful that Wenger is just as aware as us that the Gunners needs to add some quality in order to compete with the best clubs again.

Gibbs' Arsenal progress could be under threat by Stefan

Ignacio Monreal was Arsenal's only signing in January 2013 and he went on to play for the rest of the season.
