As in every single transfer window the Arsenal fans will be clamouring for Arsene Wenger to splash the cash on a top-class striker to compete with Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott, and for another top Defensive midfielder to cover for Francis Coquelin.
Well I am here to assure you that the Gunners will definitely be getting cover for those two positions in January, but it won’t cost Wenger a penny! For starters we have Jack Wilshere returned to training, and according to reports will definitely be back in the squad in early January. Wenger has often said that Wilshere is much too attacking to be a DM, but Roy Hodgson has used him in that position to great advantage for England. Wenger may not want it but Wilshere’s experience in that position could be vital in the coming months while Le Coq recovers.
Then we also have Danny Welbeck returning to the fold in January, and Wenger always said in the summer that Welbeck, Walcott and Giroud are all the strikers he needs for this season. Danny himself admitted that it has been hard being out for so long, but he is aiming to come back a better player in the New Year. He told Arsenal.com: “It is difficult,”
“It is my first injury that has kept me out for so long. I had my operation and once that is sorted you can be out for a few more months.
“For the first month, in a leg brace, not being able to do anything, on a machine six hours a day, it was very difficult. But you have to try and see the positives. Luckily I had my family around me, my friends came down to London and I had my brothers.
“It was good to have people around me and have that support. You wake up in the morning and know you have double sessions in the gym it is hard but you have to see the positive side and I have learned a lot more being injured on how to look after your body and prevent injuries. I have to see the positive side and hopefully when I come back, I will be flying.”
Danny and Jack will be the two crucial returnees in January and with neither having played one game between them this season, they should be fresh and keen to perform in the second half of the season.
Arsenal fans may not like it, but these are the only additions we will be getting to the squad in January!
