Arsene Wenger has revealed that Arsenal will try and bring in at least one player during the January transfer window.

The Gunners have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks amid the north London club’s current injury crisis.

Arsenal are understood to be in the market for defensive reinforcements and have been linked with an £8m bid for Aston Villa’s Ron Vlaar.

Asked about his plans for the forthcoming January transfer window, Wenger replied: “In January we will of course try to get at least one body in.”

He continued: “January might be a month when we have nearly everybody back because [Laurent] Koscielny is back in the squad, [Mathieu] Debuchy will be back I think in two weeks.

“We have gone through a period where we are very short but we discovered as well that players have learnt their job well in the centre-back position, like [Nacho] Monreal and he is doing very well now.”
