Arsene Wenger would be willing to reinforce his Arsenal goalscoring department before the close of the January transfer window, but would only consider a striker of 'top quality'.

The Gunners boss is content with his current options - with the likes of Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott among his number - but is ready to bolster his options if the right player comes along.

Arsenal have been linked with Barcelona forward David Villa and Adrian Lopez of Atletico Madrid, both of whom have the ability to offer the Gunners something different to what they already have at the Emirates Stadium.

Wenger told a press conference on Tuesday that Barcelona are unwilling to sell Villa during the current transfer window, and the Arsenal manager says he will not go after just 'anyone' as the deadline approaches.

"As numbers we have enough - we have plenty of quality strikers," Wenger said, as reported by "We could do with top quality, one more, but you have to find him.

"When you speak about 'anyone' coming in, I could just go out and buy anyone just to give people hope.

“What is important is that you bring in players who can strengthen your team, or you do nothing and are strong enough to do nothing.

“That is what is important for us, to bring in a player who can strengthen the squad. 'Anyone' to me means exactly what today the modern game has become."

Arsenal, meanwhile, continue to be linked with West Ham midfielder Mohamed Diame, although the Hammers are striving desperately to get the Senegal international to sign a new contract.
