ARSENE Wenger revealed he expects to announce a new signing in the "next two or three weeks".
The Frenchman (pictured) is keen to conduct most of his business before the European Championships in June, although he insists he is only in the market for one or two players.
"I know what I want and I am very confident," he told Arsenal.com.
"I hope to turn that around in the next two or three weeks. But the fans should be re-assured by what they see."
Wenger has been encouraged by what he has seen from his team this season.
But with Mathieu Flamini having left for Milan and the future of Alexander Hleb still in the balance, the coach knows he can ill-afford to begin the new campaign with a light squad.
Wenger concedes that he would prefer to sign players who have experience of playing in England, but recognises that those players often tend to come at a higher price.
"It would be better to buy someone who has played in England because they are less risky," he said.
"But it costs more money if they are from the Premier League, so maybe I will try to do both."
