Arsene Wenger gives indirect answer when asked if Arsenal will spend in January transfer window

Posted by

Don’t get your hopes up ahead of the January transfer window, Arsenal fans.

Manager Arsene Wenger was asked on Friday whether the Gunners will splash the cash in the New Year.

His reply, albeit indirect and non-committal, seemed to suggest that major signings are unlikely.

Wenger is more than happy with what he has got.

The Frenchman told Sky Sports: “We have plenty of options offensively. Defensively we are not in the need at the moment.”

Arsenal brought in four new first-team players over the summer, recruiting Granit Xhaka, Rob Holding, Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez.

Of those four signings, Mustafi has started most often.

Mustafi has started 12 Premier League games, while Holding and Xhaka have been the the first XI three and ten times respectively.

Perez has only started one league match, but he has made a big impact in other competitions, scoring twice in the EFL Cup and three times in the Champions League.

Arsenal’s first game after Christmas sees the Gunners host West Bromwich Albion on Boxing Day.

West Brom have lost their last fives matches at Emirates Stadium since winning 3-2 in North London back in September 2010.
