Arsenal don’t require any additions in the January transfer window, according to Jack Wilshere.

The Gunners have long been urged to sign a top centre-half and defensive midfielder by some of their former players if Arsene Wenger’s side want to launch a sustained Premier League title bid.

However, the north London have conceded one goal in four successive victories over Manchester United, Watford, Bayern Munich and Everton.

And injured Arsenal midfielder Wilshere believes Gabriel Paulista’s development this season has improved the Gunners defence.

Asked if Arsenal need to enter the Janaury transfer market, Wilshere told Sky Sports: “I don’t think so.

“Defensively we look good. We’ve got Gabriel who has really grown up. Last season, he was settling in. He is really suited to the Premier League.

“We’ve also got Calum Chambers, who if needed, is there. We’ve also got myself and Danny Welbeck who should be back round January and make the team stronger.”

Wenger signed 33-year-old goalkeeper Petr Cech in an £11m deal from defending Premier League champions Chelsea in the summer.

Arsenal were the only club in Europe’s top-five leagues not to sign an outfield player during the most-recent transfer window.
