Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has ruled out a January move for Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

Wenger got to take a close look at the Frenchman in action today as his side ground out a 1-0 win over the Magpies at St. James' Park to go top of the Premier League.

Arsenal were linked with a move for Cabaye - who wanted to leave Newcastle - in the summer, however were unable to land their man.

Rumours have been rife in recent weeks that the Gunners could be set to reignite their interest in the former Lille star, while big-spending Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be circling. 

However, despite that, Wenger insists he won't be looking to land Cabaye in the winter window because he already has plenty of options in midfield.

Speaking after the game, he told reporters: "No we don't look for midfielders because today we didn't have Ozil or Ramsey who stayed at home and we had still three good midfielders and I still had Arteta on the bench so there is no real need in there."

Arsenal are more likely to enter the transfer market for a new striker to offer support for Olivier Giroud in attack.

The Frenchman broke his goal-drought against Newcastle which stretched all the way back to November, but with only Nicklas Bendtner as support, Wenger may look to bring in reinforcements.
