The Gunners are widely expected to strengthen this month, having already started to free-up space in the squad by off-loading Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh on a six-month loan deal to West Ham and Swiss defender Johan Djourou to Hannover.

While Wenger has been linked with a string of reinforcements from Barcelona forward David Villa, Atletico Madrid frontman Adrian Lopez, Anderlecht’s Argentina midfielder Lucas Biglia, Yann M’Vila from Rennes and even former captain Thierry Henry on loan again, the Arsenal manager maintains he will only be tempted should a player of the required quality become available.

“We are on the market and if we find the right players, we will do something”, Wenger told Arsenal Player.

The Gunners face Manchester City at the Emirates this Sunday and Wenger believes their FA Cup comeback against Swansea can give them a boost.

Wenger said: “We have shown character and quality (against Swansea) and those are good ingredients for the coming weeks.”
