Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has defended the transfer policy of his manager Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners have made their worst start to a season in the Premier League era, leading to supporters criticising Wenger for his summer transfer business which saw Robin van Persie and Alex Song sold, with Santi Cazorla, Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud coming in.

However, according to Sky Sports, young midfielder Wilshere, who recently made his comeback after 16 months on the sidelines with ankle and knee problems, believes that Wenger remains a success in the transfer market.

It is strange because last time I played was with Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri, Alex Song and Robin van Persie,” said the 20-year-old.

Now there’s the likes of Podolski, Giroud, Cazorla and Mikel Arteta. The boss has done excellently. He’s bought well. These players are proper footballers - they understand the game and they’ve been around.

You look at someone like Lukas Podolski,” Wilshere added. “He’s got over 100 caps for his country. They’re top players and it’s easy to come into a team where they understand football.

Arsenal, currently sitting eighth place, four points off Everton and the fourth Champions League spot, take on Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium in the North London derby on Saturday afternoon in a re-run of the clash in February earlier this year. That game saw the Gunners overturn a 2-0 deficit to win the match 5-2 and eventually overhaul their rivals to take third place in the Premier League.
