Arsene Wenger has asked the club to give him the money to 'win the title' in January. Arsenal, without a league title in 11 years, need to add strength to their squad in January to end the wait.
Wenger outlined the opportunity for the club to take advantage of the weakest 'top 4' in recent years and feels one or two more players could help boost their new year title charge.
This will be music to the ears of Arsenal fans who berated Wenger year after year for not spending the big bucks. Arsenal fans have seen their spending increase with the signings of Mezut Ozil & Alexis Sanchez in recent windows and now should expect a midfielder of quality to be arriving in January.
Thierry Henry has echoed these thoughts in his newspaper column. "I would expect Arsene Wenger to buy a specialist in that position (Midfield) in January. Their injured stars will all come back into contention eventually. But Arsenal can’t rely on them — they have to plan for the rest of the season without Cazorla, Coquelin, Wilshere and Welbeck."
