Arsenal boss Wenger: No Adebayor replacement lined up

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says they're not close to signing a replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor.

Adebayor completed his move to Manchester City last night and Wenger said: "We're not on the verge of signing anybody but I'm able to spend the money if we find the right players.

"We're not in a hurry because we have a big squad. We'll see in pre-season if we need to make any additions.

"If we need to add something we will. Chamakh is one of the players we've followed and if we need to go for a striker he's a possibility. We're keeping an eye on him.

"We have Rosicky and Eduardo back so we've lost a big striker but have gained two offensive players who were absent last season.

"We also have Nicklas Bendtner, Andrey Arshavin, Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott who can play striker. We have top players we can use as strikers."
