Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he is in the transfer market to add new players before the end of the transfer window.
The Gunners registered their second win of the Premier League after edging past Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.
And the Frenchman says that he is ready to make new signings if he finds an "an exceptional player" that is available in the transfer market.
"Patience and nerves [were required against Newcastle United]," Wenger told reporters.
"I believe that we needed to not rush our game, to wait for our chances and to take one of them. I must say that Newcastle decided from the start to make the game quite physical and we had to keep our nerves and not become a little bit aggressive as well.
"I thought we did that well. Afterwards it was a strange game. You play away from home, 11 against 10, and you know that they will play 15 yards deeper, you play 10 against nine in the final third, the crowd is behind their team which puts pressure on the referee, and then it's very difficult.
"We didn't find the space. They defended well and they've shown why they didn't concede at Manchester United as well. We are happy to have the three points and to win 1-0.
"[New signings?] We are open and we are in the transfer market.
"If we find an exceptional player in any sector, we will do it. At the moment I don't know if something will happen or not."
