Arsene Wenger has not ruled out making signings in the January transfer window - but has warned Arsenal fans not to expect big moves.

The French coach has come in for some criticism as a result of his reluctance to land big-name players, particularly in light of a trophy drought that stretches back to May 2005.

Recent comments had appeared to suggest he was once again not in the market for new players, but he insisted: "It is not definite.

"It depends if somebody goes or not and whether we find on the market something that really gives us a plus - then we will of course not turn it down."

But he added on the club's television channel: "Don't expect miracles in January; you have a high number of players who have played already in Europe and couldn't help us in the Champions League and also clubs do not want to sell their best players.

"It's highly unlikely you find just the player you need in January. It's not about spending money, it's about finding just the right player to strengthen a squad that is already very strong."
