Just when Arsenal fans were hoping that Wenger may dip his hand into Arsenal’s deep pockets to sign a superstar before the Transfer deadline day to maintain their challenge for silverware this season, Arsene Wenger pulled the pin.
With just 1 fit striker available in their ranks, many thought that Wenger would delve into transfer market in search of a striker.
Against all odds however (Or maybe not given his history), Wenger has confirmed today that Arsenal won’t sign any more players in the January transfer window.
As Arsenal continue their FA Cup title defence with a 5th round game against Burnley on Saturday, the French Manager was giving his pre-match press conference on Friday evening.
While he provided positive news regarding players like Coquelin, Wenger was quite clear when talking about incoming transfers. There would be none.
When asked by a journalist about Arsenal’s activities in the last few days of January transfer window, this is what Arsene Wenger had to say:
“No, not at the moment. We have 23 players in training – and plus two is 25 – so unless people go out we are not on the verge of bringing anybody in” said the Frenchman.
So even though the Gunners are a bit short on a couple of positions at the moment, with injuries to star players like Welbeck and Wilshere restricting Wenger’s options, the Arsenal Boss is content to see out the remainder of the season with his current squad.
