Wenger says that the nature of the transfer market has changed a great deal since he came to England in 1996.
"The market has been difficult for two reasons," he explained. "One, I have quality players and, two, the competition for players is absolutely massive in the international market.
"Before, we were privileged - we were a bit more lonely out there. Now, everybody knows everybody and it is more difficult."
