Wenger wants to sign to have more chances in the Premier and in the Champions League
Arsenal is the current leader of the Premier League and despite some negative results like the surprising defeat in Southampton (4-0) this year they want to fight for all the titles. Mesut Özil is in really good shape and the Gunners face the difficult months of January and February with a full and demanding schedule.
This is why Arsène Wenger agreeds to sign a few players in the winter market. The coach of Arsenal confirmed it on Wednesday morning in press conference.
Barça alert, more midfielders
"We will be really busy this months, that's fore sure. In fact I'm already busy. As I said one month ago, the squad is a little short to play all competitions, especially regarding midfielders," admitted the coach.
Wenger was directly asked for the name of Mohamed Elneny, Basel player who could join Arsenal for €10 million: "We can't announce anything about this player because nothing has been completed," added Arsenal coach.
New midfielders could come, but the number of right-backs might decrease. Former FC Barcelona player Héctor Bellerín good performance means the ethernal presence of Mathieu Debuchy on the bench, so he might like to leave the club seeking for minutes in another club.
