Arsene Wenger has ruled out wholesale changes when the January transfer window but says that the club will strengthen the squad if they find players of the right quality.
For some reason, that sounds quite familiar to us. Almost as if we’ve heard him say it before or something.
In fairness, when you’ve been manager as long as he has there’s only a finite number of times you can answer the same questions, but all the same people keep asking because everyone loves transfers.
Asked by beIN Sport about his January plans, the Frenchman said, “You do not imagine that we will change 10 players in January. It’s 90 per cent that it’s the same squad.
“If we can find some additions to strengthen our squad we will do it.
“But we have a big squad, I think we have players of quality. We need just to stick together and fight as we can until the end of the season.”
How we come through the festive period on the injury front may well be a factor when it comes to business when the window opens next month.
Until then, we have three Premier League games to concentrate on, and hopefully good results to help inform what we need or don’t.
