Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is confident about signing a new player before the closure of the winter transfer window today.

The Gunners, who are currently second in the Premier League, have lost players in midfield to injury.

Theo Walcott is out for the season, while Aaron Ramsey will remain on the sidelines for up to six weeks.

On the other hand, Mathieu Flamini will miss three of his side’s upcoming matches after receiving a red card against Southampton on Tuesday.


And Wenger admitted that the lack of options in midfield have prompted him to dive in the transfer market.

However, the Frenchman is confident about wrapping up a deal today as he highlighted the fact that “80 per cent of the activities happen on the last day.”

"We are still trying to bring one body in because of Ramsey's setback and Flamini's suspension", he said at a press conference.

"80 per cent of the activities happen on the last day. I would scrap the winter transfer window with ease.

"I'm confident we will bring someone in today. It's 80/20 per cent chance."
