In a matter of days, the January transfer window will fly open. Arsenal will have the opportunity to augment their squad with a new player or two.
Publicly, at least, Arsene Wenger is downplaying his interest in new additions. After Arsenal's win against Newcastle, Wenger was asked about rumoured interest in Yohan Cabaye. Speaking to the Arsenal website, Wenger refuted the stories:
No we don't look for midfielders because today we didn't have Mesut Ozil or Aaron Ramsey who stayed at home and we had still three good midfielders and I still had Mikel Arteta on the bench so there is no real need in there.
However, that doesn't mean he won't be looking to strengthen in other areas.
Arsenal are doing just fine with their current squad: They're currently top of the Premier League table. However, an acquisition in the January window would be a real statement of intent.
