Arsenal manager Unai Emery has confirmed that his side can make one or two signings during the January transfer window.

The Spanish boss had said that the Gunners will not enter the transfer market this month, but with the club’s fresh injuries Emery admits his side need to sign some players.

The North London side have been strongly linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez in recent weeks.

But Emery insists Arsenal need to sign at least two players following a number of injuries that have hit his squad in recent few days.

The Spaniard has lost two defenders Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin and forward Danny Welbeck who picked up a serious ankle injury in November.

When asked if Arsenal would be seeing any new players this January, Emery said: “The club continues to work on that.”

“It’s difficult, you know, but I am working with our players and I think we need – and we can – sign some players to help after our injuries like Rob Holding, like [Danny] Welbeck, like Hector Bellerin.”

“But we can play with the players we have now and the same message is to you and every supporter, we only want to sign one or two players who can really help us with good performances.”

“I don’t want to speak about individual players, because I know the club is working.”

“They know our intentions, our possibilities for signing players that can help us, but they work and also with communication to us.”

“The idea is first to find the quality and this quality can help us,” he added. “We need, if he can come here, a winger for the right or left or some players also at centre back.”

“But now, Dinos Mavropanos is coming back after his injuries and I think I can use him in the next matches.”

The Gunners currently sit fifth with three points adrift of the Premier League’s top four with 15 games to go.
