Wigan Athletic's new manager Roberto Martinez is keen to bolster his squad even further on the back of Jordi Gomez's capture.

The Latics boss raided Espanyol on Friday to land Gomez, who he managed last season with Swansea, for a reported £1.7million on a three-year deal.

Despite the acquisition of the playmaker Martinez is unhappy with the numbers he has at his disposal and is keen to add more faces to his squad.

Light in numbers

The Spanish tactician believes competition for places is crucial within a squad as it ensures everyone is fighting for their spot and adopting the right attitude.

"We are a little light in numbers and I want to press ahead and bring in some more real quality into the squad," stated Martinez.

"You need to have healthy competition for places and we must make sure that the players coming in are of the correct standard and mental attitude for us. Watch this space."
