The Gunners have again been linked with Borussia Dortmund's much-touted forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while Andriy Yarmolenko is also a reported £25 target, but Wenger says he doesn't expect any players to arrive ahead of the 11pm deadline.

Asked whether Arsenal could make any more signings, the Frenchman replied: “99% no.”

The Frenchman added: “If Messi knocks on my door at 5.50pm I will not say ‘please go back to Barcelona’.”

On the whole transfer window, Wenger said: “The whole period was much quieter than I expected. The fact that we are all here means it is still quiet.

“If possible, I would have been open to one more but there is a rarity of players.”
