Arsenal could buy in January says Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he could be forced into the winter transfer market if the 'opportunity turns up'.

The Gunners will lose forwards Marouane Chamakh and Gervinho to Morocco and Ivory Coast respectively in January and the Frenchman has revealed that there could be a chance of a purchase of one or two players if need be, especially with the current financial situation of the club.

"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," he told supporters at a Q&A today.

"Economically the whole environment has changed and people suffer more. The clubs will suffer more financially and it's much more difficult.

"Maybe we will have some opportunities because we are in a good financial situation."
