Wenger insisted as he prepared his side for Sunday's north London derby against Tottenham, who have spent big this summer, that he was not about to embark upon a mad rush for any last-minute additions.
"We will not panic buy, that is for sure. You can believe me. It is not in my strengths to panic," said Wenger, who expects both midfielders Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey to be available this weekend.
"You need good players in every position, and especially you need an attitude and way to play the game. The players here know the way we want to play and that is important.
"If we can add players who can integrate with that style of play we will do it.
"We work very hard on that, if we cannot we will not do anything stupid just for the sake of saying that we have done something.
"We do what makes sense or not, that is simple."
