The numbers behind Arsenal's striker search

Guardiola hopeful of making new signings

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola still hopes to make more signings ahead of the new Primera Liga season.

Barca have signed striker David Villa and utility player Adriano Correia so far this summer, but Yaya Toure has left the Nou Camp and Guardiola has a relatively small squad of 19 at his disposal.

Guardiola has hinted that young players will get a chance once again this term, but insists he is interested in bringing in more new faces as well.

"New signings could arrive,'' he said at a press conference ahead of Saturday night's Spanish Supercup second leg against Sevilla.

"The club knows how I feel and if there are some positions we can strengthen. Someone may come in or not.''

Guardiola was unusually evasive, however, when asked about the future of under-fire striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Barca coach was asked about the Swede six times during the press conference, but his responses were non-committal and even somewhat mysterious.

"For the good of everybody it is better if I say nothing,'' he said. When asked why, he replied: "Because I say so, I am the coach.''

Pressed further, Guardiola added: "He is here...he's a Barcelona player.''

On Thursday, Ibrahimovic's agent, Mino Raiola, ruled out a move for his client, who has been linked with both AC Milan and Manchester City this summer.
