Santi Cazorla, who made his Premier League debut for Arsenal during their goalless draw against Sunderland on Saturday, has urged manager Arsene Wenger to bring in replacements for striker Robin Van Persie and midfielder Alex Song at the club.
Spanish playmaker Cazorla was Arsenal 's biggest threat against a resolute Sunderland, but they still made far too few chances to break the deadlock to leave the fans frustrated.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has spent in excess of 30 million pounds on Cazorla, Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, but is 9 million pounds in profit on his summer transfer business.
"It's clear that Van Persie is a great player and obviously we would all have preferred it if he had stayed. Song has gone as well and there are still 10 days left in the transfer market," The Daily Mirror quoted Cazorla, as saying.
"I do not know if we will sign anyone but obviously it's important to replace players like that because they were so important for the team. It felt really good making my debut. Of course, it was not the result any of us wanted, but we had chances and we did well," he added.
"It's a long season, so we can build on this. I had one chance and so did a few of my colleagues and that was the key to the game. We had complete control but that final step just eluded us," he said. (ANI)
