Arsenal boss Wenger: I didn't need new striker

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he didn't need to buy a new striker in the final week of the summer market.

"Well I signed Emmanuel Adebayor in January [2006] and he has worked extremely well," he replied. "Robin van Persie was injured last year and I always knew he would come back. I bought Eduardo in the summer and, don't forget, I have Bendtner back.

"Every other club in the Premier League seems to phone me to get him on loan. So how can I say that everybody wants you but we want you here and then go to buy someone new."
