Arsene Wenger said he will look at buy at least one player in the January transfer window after seeing his Arsenal side stretch their lead at the top of the Premier League with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Newcastle.
With his squad currently depleted by injuries to the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta, Wenger acknowledges he must invest to keep Arsenal’s bid for a first Premier League title since 2004 on course.
“Ideally, I would like first our injuries to come back. After that, I think at least one [new signing],” Wenger said.
“We have still players with a lack of experience in midfield, like [Calum] Chambers, [Alex] Iwobi, [Jeff] Reine-Adelaide, [Joseph] Willock. They can all play, but at the moment, because there is so much at stake, it is very difficult to get the young players to start, but they have the quality.”
