Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hinted that he may be prepared to spend during the January transfer window as he looks to strengthen his squad for the second half of the campaign.
With the likes of Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh away on African Nations Cup duty early next year,Wenger realises he will need cover in his squad:
“We lose players like Chamakh and Gervinho to the Africa Cup of Nations so hopefully, touch wood, we do not get any injuries to our strikers. But if an opportunity turns up in that department then we will buy,” Wenger revealed to a supporters’ Q&A at the Emirates Stadium.
Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia is one player that has been linked with a move to Arsenal. The 25-year-old from Argentina has become a regular for the national team over the last year and is understood to favour a move to the Premiership.
The midfielder’s agent, Enzo Montepaone told Italian website calciomercato.com: Fiorentina are interested but Arsenal also like him a lot. Italy has always been his dream and, as he holds an Italian passport, a move to Italy is very likely.
“It is, however, important to pay attention to Arsenal.”
