Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger isn't planning to add to his squad in the January transfer window, but could be tempted to splash out on a 'fantastic player'.

After bringing in ten new players in the summer, Wenger is unlikely to venture into the market to add to his squad, despite long-term injuries to the likes of About Diaby and Jack Wilshere, while Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh will travel to the African Cup of Nations in January.

However, the French boss has admitted that if a top quality player was available, he'd be willing to add his to the current Arsenal squad.

"I have a big squad, but if you knock at my door and say, 'I have a fantastic player for you' I will not turn it down," he said.

"If we have no injuries, we should get away with it because we have Chamberlain, who can play there. Park, Arshavin and Van Persie.

"So we still have offensive players, but we could be a bit short if we have an injury."

Arsenal have yet to lose in the Barclays Premier League since the start of October, and have undergone a revival after a dire start to the season which included a thrashing at the hands of Manchester United.

But with the club now in the knock-out stages of the Champions League, and back in contention to finish in the top four in the Premier League, Wenger sees no reason to make wholesale changes.

The boss has confirmed that goalkeeper manuel Almunia, who has spent part of the season on loan at West Ham United, will leave Arsenal in the upcoming window.
