LONDON - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he is in no rush to spend the money earned from the sale of defender Kolo Toure and striker Emmanuel Adebayor to Manchester City. The Londoners have made an estimated 30 million pounds from the deals but their only major signing of the close-season has been Belgian international defender Thomas Vermaelen from Ajax Amsterdam. "I feel we are strong enough but if we can add then we will do it," Wenger told the club's website in the wake of Wednesday night's 1-0 friendly win over German side Hanover. "In England people think that all the problems can be sorted out by buying players. I believe the biggest target is to work hard in training, improve what we can improve and have confidence in the players that we have. "If we need to add then we will. We have money available so for us it is now (important) to spend it in the right way when we do it or if we do it. "But unfortunately I cannot tell you that we are close to signing anyone at the moment." ARSENAL FANS!
