Arsenal have surprised this season everyone by landing just one steller signing and despite of not having a complete squad they are sailing and have bombarded to the top of the table after half the season. The North London club have powered to the top of the table during the first-half of the season, but have had to endure a spate of injuries to a number of first-team stars.
And after striker Nicklas Bendtner became the latest to fall victim to a potential long-term injury, Wenger admitted he may have to use the transfer window to bring some new faces.
Bendtner, back-up to starting striker Olivier Giroud, sprained his ankle in the process of scoring against Cardiff City on New Year’s day.
Regarding this, the Arsenal boss 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.”
