No January signings coming in by Darren N
Arsenal have had a double whammy in the last few weeks of losing both of our central midfielders to long term injuries and when you look at the other players that are out you would expect Arsene Wenger to be scouring the world for at least one top class addition to the squad, but Le Prof thinks otherwise.
This is what Wenger had to say yesterday. “We have been many times questioned about the depth of our squad,” he said. “When you have so many injuries and you go out there and play the way we did, it tells you a lot about the quality of the players that came in. It shows you as well that it was right to believe in these players.
“We talk about players like Flamini but as well Campbell, players who suddenly reveal that they have talent. We have some more. We have some young players with top talent behind. We do not want to kill the opportunity for these players to come into the squad.”
Wenger has already revealed that he is expecting Calum Chambers to step up to the defensive midfield slot, and with both Wilshere and Welbeck expected back in January as well I think we can safely say that the Boss has no intention of spending any of Arsenal’s hard-earned millions in January (and probably not in the summer either!)
Arsenal injury list: Wilshere (ankle), Welbeck (knee), Rosicky (knee), Coquelin (knee), Arteta (ankle), Cazorla (knee), Alexis (hamstring). For full details visit our Arsenal injuries page..
