“The planning of that period is extremely difficult. “First of all because we know the January window, how special it is, the opportunities that you have, the short window that you have. “Once you get the player they are straight away competing, so there is not an adaption process. The Arsenal boss also added, “And obviously with the position that we are in right now as well, it demands as well another level of player – and that player has to be available. “We will look at everything.
