Arsene Wenger will try to strengthen his Arsenal squad in January but says that the mid-season window is a “difficult” time to buy players.

The Gunners have been linked with a number of names in recent weeks as the north London club’s injury list continues to grow.

And although Wenger says that he will be in the market for new players in the new year, the Frenchman has called for patience from fans.

“You have to give us time. We do our job as always,” said Wenger.

“This season we bought five players who are all top quality so I think we have done really well on the transfer market and we try to repeat that in January.

“I would like to remind you that, to buy football players, is not to go into a supermarket and just say: ‘I want to buy a right-back or a centre-back.’ It’s to find the right quality.

“If you go out tomorrow you will see that everybody looks for the same positions everywhere. It’s not as simple as it looks.

“In January it makes it even more difficult because players are even less available than in June or July. But we will try to be creative and have one or two good ideas.”

Will Arsenal sign anyone in January?
