Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claims his summer spending has not finished yet.

The Gunners boss may have been out at the World Cup in South Africa working as a pundit for French television, but Wenger has not wasted any time in strengthening his squad.

Long-term target Marouane Chamakh, the Morocco striker, was signed on a free transfer before the tournament, and confirmation of the arrival of promising French centre-back Laurent Koscielny came on Wednesday in what is understood to be a £10million deal.

However, with veterans William Gallas and Mikael Silvestre set to leave after the end of their contracts, and Sol Campbell considering his options, the Gunners are in pressing need of at least one more body at the back.

The Gunners have been linked with Bolton's Gary Cahill as well as German international Serdar Tasci.

"Koscielny can be an outstanding addition to our team, but it is not over, we are still open to buy," Wenger told www.arsenal.com.

"We are still on the market for another defensive player because we have the need for one more."
