Arsène Wenger will NOT add to his squad during the January transfer window.

The Arsenal manager loses Ivory Coast duo Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Eboue to the African Nations Cup in the New Year but believes he has enough resources to cope without them.

Wenger's hand has been strengthened because Alex Song has not been called up to the Cameroon squad for the six-week tournament in Ghana.

"At the moment we have no information that Alex Song is going," said Wenger.

"We have Johan Djourou coming back from Birmingham and we lose Kolo and Eboue but in midfield we have plenty of players who can play."

When pressed, Wenger admitted there was one circumstance in which he might consider a purchase. "If I was offered the bargain of the century," he smiled.
