Arsene Wenger has decided to bring in new faces on the field during the January transfer window to keep his team occupied at the first spot.
The reds who are at the top of the table at the end of the first-half of the season, have had pretty bad luck with their players falling prey to injuries.
With Nicklas Bendtner who became the latest victim to a potential long term injury, Arsenal manager has taken his decision on using the transfer window to get some new faces on the field.
Bendtner, who sprained his ankle while scoring against Cardiff City on Ney Year’s day, Wenger said.
“If it is a question of up to three weeks, okay, but if it is a question of months (then) the situation is quite (different), so that is what we have to determine”
“We don’t rule anything out. If Bendtner is out for a long time, that is the obvious position. We (would) have to (buy).
“Honestly, you want to keep your chances in the season at the best possible level. Is it for short term or a stop-gap? Ideally, you want a longer solution, but a longer solution looks much more difficult to find in January than a short gap.
“You can find a solution somewhere – a club that has financial trouble and wants to get rid of a big contract for five or six months, but to find in January exactly the player who will be tomorrow’s star on the longer term is much more difficult.”
