Legend Thierry Henry believes the reason why Arsenal didn't add more players besides goalkeeper Petr Cech is that all the players wanted by the Gunners are happy at their respective clubs.
Manager Arsene Wenger made it clear throughout last month that he wanted to bring quality to strengthen the squad.
The likes of Karim Benzema, Gonzalo Higuain and Edison Cavani were all linked with a possible move to the Emirates.
But according to the Frenchman, these are all players who are not for sale and happy to play for their respective clubs.
"I do not know if the boss wanted Benzema or not, but the player must also want to come," Henry told Sky Sports.
"What are you going to offer to the guy who is playing for one of the best teams in the world, knowing that he is playing there week in, week out, and performing well?
"So I do not think that Arsene did not want to bring any other players - that would have been another story if he had really said: 'I do not want to bring in any other players.' But he said that if it can be done, then I will try to bring someone.
"But how do you get Benzema from Real Madrid when he plays there and Cavani also from Paris Saint-Germain - he scored again at the weekend? It is a difficult one.
"I do not think he did not want to bring in anyone, he wanted to bring players as we know, but it did not happen."
