Wenger says he knows his targets want to join them.
Wenger told arsenal.com: “I am confident [of new signings]. The desire of the players to join us [makes me confident] and the fact that we have - maybe not as much as everyone writes - but we have some funds available to do the transfers.
“Ideally I would rather have the squad in place at the start of the season and I am a big fan to cancel the transfer window at the start of the season anyway.
“Once the season has started you should be capable to focus on the quality of your play and have everybody with the same players for the whole season - it makes sense."
