Lukas Podolski has already signed for the club well in advance of the upcoming EURO 2012 tournament that could have raised his market value. In a similar vein, Wenger is already interested in signing new players in the coming weeks so that he can prepare adequately for the new season.
Last year, it was Manchester United who shocked the league with the early signings of Phil Jones, David De Gea and Ashley Young and this translated in a superb early season run that saw the Manchester club win the six of their first eight games.
And the Frenchman is eager to get his summer business out of the way as well so that he can focus on preparing for the league and revitalise his side as a title contender.
"[We want to make early signings] if possible, yes," he told Arsenal Player when explaining the decision to sign Podolski.
"We wanted at least one target to be sorted out early.
"Now we are in a position where the second part of our signings will be to take care of the players who are injured and to get them back for the start of next season.
"I think of course about Jack Wilshere, and about Abou Diaby. Per Mertesacker I think will be ready at the start of next season. Then, if you look at our squad, we have quite a big one and before we buy again we have to look at how many players we will have."
Wenger is aware that the Premier League regulations stipulate that the squad must be no more than 25-strong and that means that some players will definitely have to leave the club in the summer period in order to make way for new players.
Currently, Nicklas Bendtner, Carlos Vela, Ryo Miyachi and Andrei Arshavin have been sent out on loan and it is not certain that they will get a chance to feature in the first team. Moreover, there are many players in the first team that have failed to impress and who could be on their way out.
"I don't exclude it but we have to respect that [25-man squad] number," agreed Wenger.
"That is a big problem for every club and before you go out on the transfer market you have to see how you cope with the 25 players."
The Arsenal manager will lead his side out for the 900th time as a manager against Norwich on Saturday.
