Arsenal director of football reveals transfer plans

Arsenal: busy in the January transfer window?

Arsenal's director of football Raul Raul Sanllehi has opened up on his plans for the club during the coming six months. Sanllehi is now in charge of Unai Emery's expenditure on new players in the wake of Ivan Gazidis' departure from the Gunners to AC Milan.

The Gunners have been linked with a host of new players, but are yet to have wrapped up any deals.

"I'm not a strong believer of the winter window, normally it's used for emergency cases when things are not going the way you planned in the summer window," said Sanllehi.

"That doesn't mean we're not going to use it, I don't know yet, it's early in the process. If things go as planned, the winter window should not be as relevant as the summer window.

"First we need to know what the needs could be, what opportunities are in the market. We're not actively looking into that.

"Of course we're always watching the market, we have a whole team of professionals constantly analysing what's in the market, what opportunities could be there, also our head coach analyses what needs he may have.

"We have not reached a point where we've decided whether we are going or not for the winter window.

"But it will always be a decision according to the needs we may have."
