Arsene Wenger will wait to see how Arsenal fare in a tough run of fixtures before deciding whether or not to splash the cash in January, according to the Daily Star.

The Gunners currently sit top of the Premier League but are heading into a tough period prior to Christmas, with their next three games coming at home to a resurgent Liverpool, before successive trips to Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United, during which their title credentials will truly be tested.

Wenger has been under pressure to sign a striker to provide competition for Olivier Giroud, with only Nicklas Bendtner to call upon should the Frenchman suffer an injury.

The long-serving manager has refused to rule out the possibility of dipping back into the transfer market in January, however.

He said: “It’s too early. What we want first is to convince everybody we can play at the top.

“Honestly, I want to see where we stand at the end of December. We have Bendtner, Park."

“We have plenty of solutions. Even Mesut Ozil can play up front."

The Gunners were at the centre of the much-publicised Luis Suarez saga during the summer and Uruguayan lines up against them at the Emirates this evening in today's late kick-off.
