Wenger urges transfer window overhaul

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reiterated his desire to see the January transfer window scrapped and insists he will not be tempted to bring in any new signings this month.

Wenger had initially suggested he would be forced to dip into the market to provide defensive cover following an injury to Thomas Vermaelen, but despite losing Francis Coquelin to a growing injury list, Wenger believes he would not be able to find suitable cover.

The Gunners boss believes players looking to move in January will not be ready to step straight into the first team because they have either not been playing regularly at their current clubs, or have little Premier League experience.

"You find players who have not been playing at their clubs, so decide they will leave in January," Wenger said. "They are already less committed to the cause.

"We have gone from a period when even if you didn't play, you had to be committed to your club and had no other option than to fight. Now you have a quick and easy way out. I would either leave the window open, or close it completely. This is just in between when everyone gets nervous around November.

"Sometimes, if a player hasn't played, by the time they are fit, you have your own injured players back. Or you find a young player somewhere who can take three or four months to adjust to the Premier League. If we can get Thomas Vermaelen back next week, we have enough players available."
