Emery speaks on signing new defender and winger in January

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has spoken on the possibility of the club signing a new defender and a winger in the January transfer window to strengthen the squad for the remainder of this season.

The Gunners managed to put together a long 22-game unbeaten run during the early months of the season but the team’s results in recent weeks have been far less impressive.

Even though Arsenal have won their last two fixtures against Fulham and Blackpool with convincing scorelines, the embarrassing result at Liverpool which came before those two games exposed a lot of the team’s weaknesses.

Therefore, many fans have been urging the club to spend some money in order to increase any faint hopes of a top four finish for the Gunners this season.

The back-line is an area where Emery’s side appears to be needing reinforcement the most while injuries to Danny Welbeck and Henrikh Mkhitaryan mean a new attacker might be needed as well.

Thus, Emery has admitted that the club could make a new addition in those two areas if the right player is found.

“I think the club is working for the possibility to bring in some players who can help us during this next four months of competition. It’s a different situation.” the Arsenal manager said

“If the transfer market can help us find a centre back, the possibility to bring them in is not easy because we also have Mavropanos coming back from injury.

“If we have the possibility to sign some important players, we can do it. At left or right wing, perhaps one player can help us in this position. We will only sign players who give us quality. “
