Wenger quiet over Arshavin

23 January 2009 10:42
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has vowed to keep his counsel over the club's move to sign Zenit St Petersburg ace Andrei Arshavin. The 27-year-old Russia international forward is rumoured to be close to completing a £15million move to England, but Wenger has refused to be drawn on the latest round of press speculation. He told the club's official website: "It is in the newspapers, but not from our side. We are quiet and we know what we want to do. "We will keep that as quiet as possible and for as long as we can. It is difficult, because I believe when it does not work it can turn against them or against us. "You have to accept that in the transfer market, sometimes you go for a player and sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't happen. "But I am very happy with the squad I have and will only add someone who can give us something special. For the rest I have good players and believe strongly in them. "Should we not get what we want, we will accept it as well, because I believe we are strong enough with what we have."
