Arsenal manager may do more business in January

Wenger may do more business in JanuaryArsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that he will be ready to bring in more new recruits in January, if Arsenal are still struggling and underachieving by then.

Arsenal were one of the main talking points throughout the summer transfer market, following the transfers of star men Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri away from the Emirates, which then resulted in the Frenchman being forced in to using the summer to rebuild his squad.

Despite the signings of players such as: Gervinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Per Mertesacker and Andre Santos, and with others included bringing the spending spree to nearly £50million, Arsenal still sit in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

Failed bids for defenders Phill Jagielka and Gary Cahill were disappointing for the Gunners faithful, meanwhile Belgian star Eden Hazard and French attacking-midfielder Yoann Gourcuff have remained as long-term targets.

Before their 2-1 win over Sunderland on Sunday, Wenger hinted that he could be ready spend more money in the coming year, saying “I don’t know if there will be much business in January. At the moment I am happy with my squad.

“But it depends who is in the market and how well we do between now and December. If we have good results and the players have developed well, then numbers-wise we have a big squad.” Wenger continued.

“Today I had 20 players in training and four are still out injured.”

However Wenger has confirmed that should Thomas Vermaelen return to full-fitness and is able to stay fit, a new bid for a centre-back will not happen.
Wenger added: “I like Cahill as a player but Vermaelen will be back in two weeks and Laurent Koscielny is a good defender too.”
