Wenger: Arsenal will continue to produce our own

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal will stay committed to producing their own.

Wenger believes there are many advantages to building a team mainly around homegrown players, and says the Club is firmly committed to continuing on this path.

"We have always done it, first of all because it's a guarantee of security and stability - we never want to go below a certain level," he said.

"If you can get the right players into the squad at an early age, you can build a real team spirit. When people have grown up together, they have that fraction more togetherness when they are on the pitch than if you assemble players from all over the world.

"So it makes the team attitude a bit stronger, which you can't get from signing players from all over the world."
