Arsenal boss Wenger plays down Arshavin talk

After injury to Cesc Fabregas, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has cooled talk of a move for Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Andrei Arshavin.

"Yes [I am more likely to buy], but we also have internal solutions so we are not desperate because of that," Wenger told arsenal.com. "Now we have a big game in front of us and before January anyway I believe it is more important to focus on our games.

"At the moment no one is going out and no one is coming in. That gives you a perfect answer! And I don't feel any need to speak about that [the Arshavin speculation] because at the moment that is not a realistic solution."
