Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that he intends to bring more faces into the club following the return of Mathieu Flamini.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that the club are still looking to strengthen following the return of midfielder Mathieu Flamini.

The North London outfit announced that the Frenchman, who spent four years with the Gunners before leaving, has signed a three-year contract.

When asked by the club's official website if he is still looking for new additions, Wenger said: "Yes, of course.

"When you think that we lost three players of the stature of [Mikel] Arteta, [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain and [Lukas] Podolski for three months basically before the season really starts, it's very hard to take and we are in a position where you want some more players."

Reports emerged today that the club have lodged a bid in the region of £25.6m for Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria.
