Arsenal boss Wenger admits he may buy in January

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger won't rule out being active in the January market.

Wenger is not ruling out some transfer activity at Emirates Stadium but he is keen to keep expectations at a realistic level.

"Robin Van Persie is a very, very long-term injury and we are open-minded on the transfer market," said the Arsenal manager.

"But I don't want to promise things that I don't really know I will do at the moment.

"Mainly I am expecting our players to come back [from injury]."
