Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger maintains the Gunners are “in the market” for reinforcements during the January transfer window, but will only move for quality men.

The Gunners are in sixth place, three points behind fifth placed Everton and six points behind fourth placed Tottenham, with Chelsea a point ahead.

“We try very hard, believe me,” he said.

“We have a team around me who analyse everything. We select targets, I watch them, but it is difficult to speak about any names.”
