Arsene Wenger: I find the winter transfer window a disturbance


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has again called for the January transfer window to be abolished.

The Gunners secured the services of defender Gabriel Paulista and midfielder Krystian Bielik this winter but the Frenchman says teams should start and end the season with the same players.

"It was never such a low activity level across Europe - basically nothing happened," Wenger said during Friday's press conference.

"It shows still that financial fair play had an impact, for sure, because we have the experience of seasons before.

"It pushes even more an idea forward - let's completely get rid of [the transfer window], and go from season to season with the same players.

"Yes [I would scrap January transfers] because it can disturb the cohesion of a group within the season.

"When the players don't play in October or the end of September, they already think that they may move in January.

"You lose them and in our job it's important that everybody is on board. I find the transfer window [a disturbance]."
