Unai Emery is happy with his squad but he says that we will not ignore a good opportunity if one arises in the January transfer window.
Our defensive options have been stretched recently with Rob Holding, Dinos Mavropanos, Shkodran Mustafi and now Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac out injured.
Laurent Koscielny is back from a long absence but, with Unai opting for a back three at times, his resources have been stretched.
“The club is working because if we have one good option to come around and help us, we can do it,” said Unai. “The club has this possibility to help us in the transfer window with some players, but I am very happy with the players.
“Already, we have some problems at centre back when we’re playing with three centre backs, but Sokratis is coming back [against Tottenham]. Koscielny is also coming back, Mustafi is coming back in the next week.
“I can sometimes play with Xhaka or Nacho Monreal, and also Mavropanos is starting to do training on the pitch and running. Maybe in one month he can help us, but also in this transfer window if we have one good opportunity to help us and sign [someone], we are working for that.”
