Quiet month

Despite a promising start to the season, Arsenal have stuttered a bit in the Premier League in recent times and it was widely expected that the Gunners would be looking to bring in a couple of players to the Emirate Stadium during the current January transfer window, especially in attack.

Much to the surprise of many though, Wenger has now gone on to drop a big hint that he will not be signing anyone this month and added that the return of Danny Welbeck to full fitness has fulfilled the need for a new attacking player.

Wenger said, “I expect it to be a very quiet period because we have Welbeck coming back. Offensively we are very strong, we have many players who can come in and overall I don’t expect to do anything special.”

Arsenal trio in danger of leaving

While the contractual deadlock between Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil has been dominating all the headlines, a number of other Gunners’ first team members are also soon entering the final year of their respective deals at the Emirates Stadium and the trio of Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are among them.

Now according to reports from the London Evening Standard, revelations can be made that Arsenal have not yet begun talks with Wilshere, Gibbs and Oxlade-Chamberlain over new contracts and there is a strong possibility that the trio might leave, especially as the North London side have already secured the future of other first team players such as Olivier Giroud, Francis Coquelin, Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.

Max Allegri to replace Arsene Wenger
