Arsenal boss Wenger: I will buy striker if good opportunity comes up

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he will buy a new striker if a "good opportunity" comes up.

With Holland striker Robin van Persie sidelined for the best part of the remainder of the campaign, Wenger is keeping an "interested eye" out for possible replacements.

However, with Nicklas Bendtner on the comeback trail from a groin injury and England international Theo Walcott also set to return from a side strain, Wenger does not believe his squad are too light in attack.

"If I find a really good opportunity we will do it but, for the rest, wait and see," he said.

"If we have Bendtner, [Carlos] Vela, Eduardo, [Andrey] Arshavin and Walcott coming back available, then we have quite a good number of strikers.

"We can be a bit more relaxed."
