Arsene Wenger will not be dipping into the transfer market for a keeper.Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated he will not be dipping into the transfer market in January in order to bolster his goalkeeping options.
Jens Lehmann was recently dropped following a dip in form and his replacement, Manuel Almunia, has failed to impress during the German's absence.
The Spaniard has made a series a blunders during his short spell between the sticks after allowing David Bellion's effort to slip through his fingers while also flapping at a cross against Rosenborg.
Some feel Lehman might be recalled for Arsenal's table-topping clash against Chelsea on Sunday, however Wenger will not be getting out the chequebook come the New Year.
"I don't feel it will be necessary to bring in a new goalkeeper in January, not at all," explained Wenger to the Evening Standard.
Third choice keeper Stuart Taylor is currently on loan after falling down the pecking order at The Gunners and may be recalled should Wenger want an alternative to Lehmann or Almunia.
