Arsenal, Arsene Wenger

Wenger reveals Arsenal transfer plans

Arsene Wenger has no plans to make any further January signings bolster his Arsenal squad in the closing days of the transfer window.

The north London club, who are three points adrift of Leicester as they bid to win their first Barclays Premier League title in over a decade, signed Egypt international Mohamed Elneny earlier this month.

But Wenger, speaking ahead of his side’s FA Cup fourth-round tie against Burnley on Saturday, is anticipating a quiet deadline day at the Emirates Stadium.

Asked if any more players could arrive before the window closes, Wenger said: “No, not at the moment.

“We have 23 players in training – and plus two is 25 – so unless people go out we are not on the verge of bringing anybody in.

Regarding his own future, Wenger, who has 18 months to run on his current contract, added: “I am completely focused on doing well and give everything until the end of the season and then go for the next season hopefully.

“I don’t imagine at this moment to manage anywhere else. Will I stop working once I stop managing at a competitive level? No, I will always try to work if I have health and try to be useful.

“Maybe it will be a different level. It could be managing kids or developing young players but I will not run for FIFA.”
