Arsene Wenger admits that it is unlikely he will add to his squad in January
Wenger wants Thomas Lemar after failing to land the Monaco winger for £92million on deadline day.
But he is set to miss out to Liverpool, with Lemar reportedly favouring a switch to Anfield.
Wenger has also been linked with a move for Schalke star Leon Goretzka.
The Frenchman, 68, said: “You do not imagine that we will change 10 players in January.
“It’s 90 per cent that it’s the same squad.
“If we can find some additions to strengthen our squad we will do it. But we have a big squad, I think we have players of quality.”
