Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is open to the possibility of making new signings in the Janunary transfer window.
Despite speculation rising Alexis Sanchez will be sold to Manchester City, with Mesut Ozil to leave in the summer the long-serving Frenchman has suggested he would welcome a new face.
Speaking ahead of the Gunners hosting Chelsea in the Premier League on Wednesday, Wenger said: “We are open in any position for the exceptional player that can give us a plus.
“It depends a bit on the injuries as well, on the other hand it depends who will manage to extend the contracts of the players who are at the end of their contracts in June.”
However, long-term observers of the club are cynical as to whether the Frenchman is serious about bolstering the first team squad this month.
