Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that the club could sign “one or two” players during the transfer window to bolster the squad.
Following Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Swansea City in the FA Cup third round, the Gunners must replay the tie between the visit of Manchester City and a trip to face Chelsea, before rounding off the month by hosting West Ham and Liverpool.
And, following the loan departures of Marouane Chamakh and Johan Djourou, Wenger said there is “room” in the squad for new arrivals before the close of the window.
“(Abou) Diaby’s coming back and if we find one or two on the transfer market, then (we can cope with the fixture list),” Wenger told the club’s official website.
“Let’s first keep the players we have and maybe add one or two. We lost Chamakh and Djourou now, so there’s some room.”
