Arsene Wenger has warned Arsenal fans he will need to offload some the deadwood from his side before he can think about reinforcements, saying the size of his squad is “not manageable”, according to the Independent.
The Gunners’ transfer activity this summer has been limited to the acquisition of Alexander Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac and following his side’s defeat at Stoke yesterday Wenger said that he couldn’t get into “transfer mode”.
“I expect to sell players first,” he said. “We have too many players. It is not manageable. Many clubs are in this situation – that is why the transfer market is quiet. We have 33 players at the moment. We have too many players.”
