Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants concentration to remain on the side producing the required performance against Swansea rather than thinking about how to boost any perceived deficiencies.

The Gunners are expected to make some moves to bolster the squad this month, with a £10million bid for Atletico Madrid striker Adrian Lopez said to be on the table, while fringe players like Johan Djourou and Sebastien Squillaci will be off-loaded. Morocco forward Marouane Chamakh has already joined West Ham on loan until the end of the season.

“The most draining is that you get the best out of your team and worry about the next game. In our job it is important that you focus on what is really important, the players who can help the club to win the games - those who are somewhere on the transfer market will not help you to win the games,” Wenger told a press conference.

“For us it is important to focus on our next game and our next game can only be won by the players who are here.”
