Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reveals that he is looking to add quality to his squad and not simply boost the numbers.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is looking for quality and not quantity in this summer's transfer window.

The Gunners have been linked with a number of big names so far, including strikers Gonzalo Higuain, Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney.

Wenger has described them as realistic targets in terms of the quality he is searching for, but has called on the fans to remain calm as the club look to conclude their deals.

"They are all realistic targets quality-wise, [although] not all of them are available to join us," Wenger told reporters.

"All of those players are under contract and it is the club that decides if they can go and, after, if they can join us.

"The fans, the players, everybody is reassured by big names always. But what is important is that we don't need numbers, we need quality."

Arsenal have already added Yaya Sanogo to their squad this summer, signing the striker on a free from Auxerre.
