Arsenal boss Wenger dismissive of panic buys

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes the January transfer window can induce panic buying from clubs. The Frenchman only intends to add to his Gunners squad if they can add quality and value.

"It's just like you go out and you buy anyone just to give people hope," Wenger said.

"I think what is important is that you bring in players who can strengthen your team, or you do nothing, you're strong enough to do nothing."

"I always said that what is important is to bring a player in who can strengthen the squad."

"'Anyone', for me, means just exactly what is today the modern game has become."

"In January it's very difficult to find players who strengthen your team when you're in our position."
