Arsene Wenger has revealed he won’t sign any player this summer based on performances at the Euro 2016, via a report on Squawka.
Wenger is expected to pay close attention to the competition this summer but he has revealed he won’t be making any transfer decision based on the competition.
Wenger said: “No, I wouldn’t. Unless I’ve known him before, go to the tournament and see him. You have two kinds of people at these tournaments – some have played 60 games during the season, and some have played 15, maybe due to injuries. You have to be very cautious with that.
“We analyse every game in Europe now. We spoke about 1984, then you discovered players that had big tournaments. But that has gone now. It’s difficult to find surprise players because of the strength of scouting. It’s equally hard to forecast who could be a star. Sometimes it can be a guy who has less than 60 games in his legs. At past tournaments we’ve had many surprises.”
Arsenal recently completed the signing of Granit Xhaka from Borussia Dortmund and are also waiting for Jamie Vardy to make a decision on his future after his release clause was activated. Wenger is actively working new signings this summer
