Arsene Wenger has also revealed in his news conference that defender Mathieu Debuchy could be allowed to leave Arsenal in January.
Debuchy has featured just twice in the Premier League for the Gunners this season, as on-going injury problems, and the superb form of Hector Bellerin, halt his progress.
Speaking on Debuchy’s future, Wenger said: “It's not impossible [January transfer]. I'm happy if he stays but we'll see."
West Brom have been linked with the France international, although a report in the Daily Express suggests he will reject any advances from Tony Pulis’ side.
