The Gunners are currently sat atop the Barclays Premier League, but are just a point ahead of nearest rivals Manchester City as the season ticks over into 2014.

However, with the January transfer window on the horizon, Arsenal will be afforded the chance to build on their title credentials and star defender Per Mertesacker has called for Wenger to prove how shrewd he truly is once again with his signings.

“We need the right additions,” the German told Arsenal Player.

“We said that a lot in the summer then Mesut Ozil came, but at this time, in a very special period that only happens in England, you need to get the right additions with players who come back from injury.

“We lost Aaron Ramsey [against West Ham] so a good player is maybe out for two or three weeks, so we need the right additions now.

“We have a good squad and that is going to be vital in the next couple of weeks.”
