Having secured Lukas Podolski's signature, rumours are abound that Arsenal are close to making several other signings before the start of next season. However, Wenger does not believe a spending spree is required, as he is satisfied with most of the players on the roster.

"We have already bought Podolski and we have bought five players during the season when it had already started, our job will be focused on inside [matters] now we have Podolski," he shared with Arsenal Player.

"That means to get Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby back in a healthy situation and then I believe we have quite a big squad. It will be [our intention] to trim a little bit and if possible add one or two players."

The Frenchman is also convinced that most of their league rivals will be following suit and not make too many signings.

"I believe that the summer will be quiet for many reasons, first of all in England you have a 25-man limited squad number. Secondly the financial situation all over Europe is really bad and in some countries they have other worries than football," Wenger said.

"In our job, and this is like a football match, it is not completely predictable. But on the vibes I get even from the clubs who are big spenders, they all want to slow down."

Arsenal will visit West Brom for their last Premier League game of the season.
