Can Arsenal, minus Emmanuel Abedayor, get their pre-season preparations on track in the Emirates Cup? They face Atletico Madrid in an intriguing encounter on Saturday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he is no hurry to spend the money accrued by the sale of Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor to Manchester City.

Toure completed his move to Manchester City on Wednesday, following Emmanuel Adebayor in joining the big-spending Eastlands outfit.

Wenger, whohas come in for criticism in the past for his reluctance to splash the cash, has only signed Thomas Vermaelen from Ajax this summer.

Wenger, who has been linked with ex-captain Patrick Vieira, told the club’s official website: “I feel we are strong enough but if we can add then we will do it.

“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.”

The club have refused to comment on the reports about Vieira, who is keen to leave Inter and has been linked with a return to Arsenal.
