Wenger happy with progress of Arsenal transfer plans

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says they're gradually getting their transfer plans together.

"Slowly, yes, we will get there," Wenger told Arsenal TV Online.

"I have said many times and I will repeat that, even if you go through a difficult patch at the moment my first target is to keep the team together and when that job is done I can go somewhere else and look, but I have not completed that job at the moment.

"It's just he's a player (Hatem Ben Arfa) I have known for a long, long time and that I rate, but I have never heard from Lyon that he is for sale. I just wanted to say [in a recent interview with the French press] that for me, he is a good player with a great talent."
