Wenger ponders purchase potential

Published Add your comment

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he could be tempted into the January sales if "an opportunity turns up".

The Gunners have turned their season around following seven wins from the last eight Barclays Premier League matches, to move back into contention for the top four, with much of that success has been built on the 19 goals of prolific captain Robin van Persie.

With both Ivory Coast forward Gervinho and Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh both set to be away at the African Nations Cup early next year, Wenger accepts his back-up options will be stretched, and told a supporters' Q&A at the Emirates Stadium: "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."
