Arsene Wenger has revealed he has too many players and that Tuesday night’s 2-0 victory over Wigan proves he does not need to sign any players in January.

Arsenal have been linked with a number of players in the last month but their boss believes he has enough strength in depth to get by and feels winning trophies is not the be all and end all.

The Gunners have been linked with the likes of Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard recently but Arsenal fans still insist they need a new goalkeeper.

Lukasz Fabianski has made a number high profile mistakes already this season but has also made amends by keeping Arsenal in some games.

Wenger is reportedly still chasing Fulham stipper Mark Schwarzer, who wants to move, as well as Middlesbrough’s Jason Steele and Manchester City No.2 Shay Given.

A central defender could also be a target for the Gunners as Wenger’s two new signings, Laurent Koscielny and Sebastian Squillaci, have struggled to settle into life at the Emirates Stadium.

But Wenger told Arsenal’s official website that he has no need to urgently rush into the transfer market – a tactic he has used throughout his career with the Gunners.

“We made nine changes [against Wigan] and we still don’t have Abou Diaby and Thomas Vermaelen, who are injured. Manuel Almunia and Sebastien Squillaci too,” he said.

“Then there are the players we rested like Marouane Chamakh. And Aaron Ramsey will be back in the squad [soon].

“I don’t know where to put the players. If you buy a player you have to give them a chance to play. Already we have internationals who don’t get enough games.”
