Arsenal boss Wenger admits days of discovering players are over

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits it will be no easy task uncovering a signing as good as Thomas Vermaelen this summer.

The Belgium defender has been a revelation since his arrival from Ajax.

"It is not any more as it was 15 or 20 years ago - everybody knows everybody now," Wenger reflected.

"It is more about shrewd buying now in taking a gamble than in discovering somebody."
