Arsenal club secretary David Miles says the Gunners are still open for business this transfer window and has backed Arsene Wenger to sign the right players.
The Gunners are looking to strengthen, especially after the recent departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.
Wenger has been linked with a move for Everton's Phil Jagielka among others in this transfer window and Miles has backed the Arsenal boss to bring in the right players before the 11pm deadline next Wednesday.
He told Sky Sports: "I think that you'll appreciate I can't exactly give you specifics but certainly everyone is committed.
"If there's quality players to be brought in I've got every faith in Arsene Wenger that he'll do so.
"As you rightly say we've got just under a week. I've been involved myself in some last minute transfers so until the window actually closes I think that we're still open for business."
Meanwhile, Miles has welcomed the club's UEFA Champions League group draw after the Gunners beat Udinese on Wednesday to progress.
Wenger's side now face Marseille, Greek champions Olympiakos and Borussia Dortmund in Group F.
"First of all the first priority was to actually get here I think we'll be quietly pleased with the draw," he added.
"We've been in the Champions League every season under Arsene's tenure. I'm pleased we don't have to travel too far, to the far off eastern European clubs. Arsene will see that as a big bonus."
