The result leaves the Gunners without a win in their first two league fixtures, after they were beaten 4-3 by Liverpool at the Emirates last Sunday.
But Wenger had a bit of good news for the supporters.
“Yes we are close,” he told BT Sport. “But I would say spending in itself is not a quality. Spending and buying the right players is a quality.
“I am a bit fed up to always respond to the same things. We look and analyse absolutely everything and we have to make the right decisions.”
