Arsene Wenger has not only delivered his latest team news ahead of the Boxing day fixture against West Brom, he has revealed what he plans to do with the January transfer window.
We have been linked with a number of players but given the activities of the summer, Wenger is happy with the quality and quantity of players at his disposal.
‘Of course, because we have [Lucas] Perez, [Olivier] Giroud, [Danny] Welbeck, [Theo] Walcott, [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain and we have plenty of options offensively,’ Wenger said at his Friday press conference.
‘Defensively, we are not in the need at the moment.’
Wenger went on to explain the benefits of Ramsey’s return to the first-team going into the new year.
He added: ‘Ramsey’s back and you know his strengths. He’s efficient offensively, has a high level of activity and is a complete box-to-box player gives us options in the team when he plays.’
On whether he’s like a new signing, Wenger replied: ‘Yes, he’s played only two full games since start of last season.
‘It’s not too premature. He had some setbacks but hopefully he will be alright this time.’
