Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits that his squad may lack depth in attack but insists that it is hard to find quality players in January.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he would like to bring in a striker before the transfer window closes.

The Gunners have scored eight goals in their last two games but have little cover for Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott in the centre of their three-man attack.

Wenger believes that Arsenal possess enough quality in the final third but in an ideal world he would like an extra player to help his squad fight on three fronts in the second half of the season.

When asked if he needs to sign another forward, Wenger said: "Quality-wise no, number-wise, we could be a bit short maybe.

"Gervinho is not here at the moment. We have Walcott, who can play through the middle, and then of course Giroud.

"You do not find them (signings) in the street, the strikers that can play for us and strengthen our team. It's difficult in January."

Arsenal have been heavily linked with bids for David Villa and Adrian Lopez in the last few weeks.
