Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that he is “90%” likely to have the same squad that he currently has once the January transfer window slams shut.
The Gunners have been at the centre of transfer speculation, but it involves outgoings rather than incomings at the Emirates.
Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are among a handful of players whose contracts expire next summer, which has sparked rumours that sales could be made mid-season.
Wenger has maintained that the pair will not leave next month, and it seems that the Frenchman will not bring in a handful of fresh faces either.
“You do not imagine that we will change 10 players in January,” Wenger told beIN Sports. “It’s 90% that it’s the same squad.
“If we can find some additions to strengthen our squad we will do it, but we have a big squad. I think we have players of quality. We need just to stick together and fight as we can until the end of the season. I believe that we have to be faithful to the players we have at the moment.”
Arsenal currently sit fifth in the league table, one point adrift of the Champions League places and 19 behind leaders Manchester City.
