Arsenal Boss Confirms Plans To Sign Defender In January – reports

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the Gunners will look to bring in a new defender during the January transfer window, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

The north London club recruited heavily in the summer, but fans were left disappointed at the end of the transfer window when Calum Chambers was the only defensive addition.

Chambers joined the club from Southampton for £16 million, and has impressed since the start of the new season.

This recruitment strategy has looked increasingly short sighted, with Arsenal suffering a huge raft of injuries to their back line.

Mathieu Debuchy remains injured, and likely will do until the new year, with Laurent Koscielny and Kieran Gibbs also missing chunks of the campaign.

However, Wenger confirmed at the club’s annual general meeting today that the club would look to bring in another defender in January, which will be music to the ears of Arsenal fans.

He said: “We bought good players, I believe we’ve done remarkably well in the transfer market.

“We wanted one more player, but couldn’t. We will try to rectify that in January.”
