Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he will only use the January transfer window if he is able to bring a "top quality" player to the club.

There has been plenty of speculation in recent weeks that Arsenal will look to bolster their squad, especially after it was announced that a new five-year sponsorship deal would bring in an additional £150million.

It is believed that the money would go towards transfers and players wages, but it seems as though Wenger will only make an offer in the New Year if he identifies the right player.

With Arsenal already ten points behind leaders Manchester United, there had been speculation that Wenger would look to add some extra firepower to his squad.

Schalke forward Klaas Jan Huntelaar has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League and he has already demonstrated his class in the Champions League as he scored in both group games against Arsenal.

Huntelaar's fellow Schalke team-mate Lewis Holtby is another that has been linked with a possible move to Arsenal, however, Wenger was unwilling to give anything away.

"We have a good squad, I believe that these players have a fantastic attitude," Wenger told the club's official website. "They deserve success and they will have success.

"We will be on the market if we find the real top, top, top player. We have no fixed number, we look just at quality."

Arsenal have had a mixed start to the season as demonstrated in recent weeks as they beat Tottenham 5-2, before registering just two shots on target as they were held to a 0-0 draw against a struggling Aston Villa.

They head to Goodison Park on Wednesday night to face an Everton side who are currently one point ahead of Arsenal in fifth place.
