Arsène Wenger has revealed some of his thoughts ahead of the opening of the January transfer window.
 
The Arsenal manager has ruled out adding to his resources in the centre of the park but added that his side might be "a bit short" in defence.
 
"In midfield we have plenty of players," he said. "The only area we might be a bit short is at the back because we have Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Eboue going to the African Nations Cup.
 
"We might have Johann Djourou back though. We have the option to recall him."
