Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed they're strengthening their scouting base in Germany and Japan.

Wenger admits the race is on to find the next source of new players, with Arsenal spreading their net far and wide.

"We are trying to diversify much more where we are looking," he said. "In England you are a bit limited.

"I find that a new market that is very interesting and very competitive is the Japanese market. Look at the number of Japanese players who play now in Germany for example."
