Well there you have it Arsenal fans, the news that we all feared and most of us expected has been confirmed today by Arsene Wenger. The Gunners will not be signing another striker in the January transfer window, unless something happens to change the mind of our manager in the next couple of weeks.
With Alexis Sanchez due back in action either this weekend against Stoke City or the next game after and with our England international forward Danny Welbeck finally back in training after his long injury lay-off, the boss feels that the Gunners have plenty of options up front, and as reported by The Mirror he feels that he will not find any better options than what he has in the January transfer window.
The Frenchman said, “I would prefer to have my players back from their injuries. [Danny] Welbeck is two to three weeks away and I am confident I will not find a better player than Welbeck on the market.”
However, I am sure we all remember what happened in the summer, when the former Man United star was supposed to be close to a comeback and then just a day or so after the summer window closed he had a setback. Six months later and we still have not seen Welbeck again so is it really wise for Wenger to gamble a possible Premier League title on our very dodgy injury record?
