Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking for a "special" player to sign before the end of the summer transfer window.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is looking for a "special" player to sign before the end of the summer transfer window.

Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin has been linked with the Gunners, but the Frenchman hints that he is looking for someone else.

"At the moment, [the signing of Sahin] is not alive," said Wenger. "Can you be not alive and not dead? It is possible.

"We will only take players who have something special. We are still in the market in some positions, but overall we believe we have a very strong squad."

Wenger added that he is happy with the midfielders he has at his disposal for this season.

"We have a good mixture because we have experienced players in midfield like [Mikel] Arteta and [Santi] Cazorla, like [Tomas] Rosicky, and some young very promising players like [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain, [Aaron] Ramsey, [Francis] Coquelin, [Jack] Wilshere and one or two in between age wise like [Abou] Diaby, who is coming back," said the Frenchman.

"We believe we have a good mixture."

Arsenal are back in Premier League action on Sunday when they take on Stoke City away from home.
