Arsene Wenger is Reluctant to Sign World Cup Stars

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said that he would not rush to recruit world cup stars in his team. He believes that anybody can have ‘three weeks glory’ and the price of the world cup stars would be artificially high at the end of the tournament. He admitted that he was eyeing some playing for next season, but he refused to reveal their names.

Reports available in the media suggest that Wenger is keen to sign Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh on a free transfer as his contract with the French club ends this summer. Wenger said:

"The World Cup will not affect our recruitment," he said. "It is dangerous to buy on the back of a World Cup. The prices are artificial and you have to bear in mind that anyone can have three weeks of glory........

"I do have targets and have been talking to people but I cannot mention any names at the moment. The earlier you settle your teams for the next season the better it is and the less anxiety you have."

Arsenal could not win any trophy over the last five seasons, since winning FA Cup 2005. However, there is no sign that Wenger would spend heavily in the transfer window this Summer.
