Having officially ruled out bringing in Germany winger Julian Draxler before the end of the day in his morning press conference, Arséne Wenger remains confident of bringing someone in to help ease Arsenal's injury worries.
Aaron Ramsey will be out for around six weeks and with Mathieu Flamini suspended for four matches Wenger is keen to boost his thinning squad before a run of games that sees them face Liverpool twice, Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
In the last few days the north Londoners have been linked with loan moves for two pacy Spanish forwards: Barcelona’s Christian Tello and Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata. Both clubs, however, are thought to be reluctant to let the their youngsters leave on loan.
A more experienced option would be veteran Lazio striker Miroslav Klose, who also could be available on loan. The Germany forward could provide a similar option to the one Henrik Larsson gave Manchester United a few seasons ago.
Arsenal are also still considering a loan move for the Juventus striker Mirko Vučinić , with some sources claiming a deal may have already been agreed.
And there is also an outside chance they might make a move for former Tottenham forward Dimitar Berbatov.
