Wenger promises reinforcements
Arsene Wenger expects to make progress this week in his attempts to strengthen his Arsenal squad following the humiliating FA Cup exit to Nottingham Forest.
Wenger insists the Gunners, who last week signed Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos, will do further business during the transfer window in an effort to turn things around, but said no deals were imminent.
Asked whether there could be developments this week, Wenger said: "Yes, because we are in the second week of January and, after that, it passes quickly."
Meanwhile, Aitor Karanka has been appointed as Nottingham Forest's new manager on a two-and-a-half-year contract.
"We are very pleased to have reached terms with Aitor Karanka to become the manager of Nottingham Forest," said chairman Nicholas Randall QC.
