Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger admits that even though the Gunners have a large squad, they will have to visit the idea of making a few transfers in January.
The outgoings of Gervinho and Chamakh to the African Cup of Natons will also be a problem for the Frenchman who will lose two attacking players for a while.
“We have a big squad. To add players to our big squad, we will have to see how we can balance our books as well,” said Wenger.
“Then, we lose Chamakh and Gervinho for January – two strikers. Maybe Chamakh has not played too many games, but he is still a security that we have. So Park has to step up.
“The adaptation period for him is over now so he has to come in and show he has the quality to play for us. I believe he has. We also have Arshavin and Chamberlain, who is now ready, slowly, to play.”
As a replacement for the attacking position German striker Lukas Podolski has been intensely linked with a possible move to Arsenal in January, but the manager denied the possibility, although he admitted a striker must be brought in. Who do you think will join?
