Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists that the club can still attract top-quality players, despite losing the likes of Robin van Persie and Alex Song.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that the club can still attract top-quality players.

Wenger recently lost two of his biggest stars, Robin van Persie and Alex Song, and the club have not signed anyone since the duo's departure.

However, the Frenchman insists that he will only bring players in if he feels that they are right for the club and available at the right price.

"We have more problems to say no than get a yes. 99% of the time it is because we don't want it or the financial positions are not what we want them to be," said the Gunners boss.

"You would be surprised at the people who want to join us. Why? Because we are top of the European game. We have one quality at this club. We are brave. It is not because you push us to do something that we do it.

"Secondly, we sit down and anticipate the problems we face. We took the decisions, now we have to show they are the right ones. That is what is at stake."

Wenger's side travel to Stoke City on Sunday in search of their first win of the season.
