Gunners coy on full-back search

Arsene Wenger says he is still considering bringing in a new full-back but hasn't made much progress since the transfer window opened.

The Gunners are in desperate need of a new full-back with all of their recognised players in both the right and left-sided berths out with injury at the moment.

With both of Wenger's cover options - Thomas Vermaelen and Francis Coquelin - also out, the Arsenal boss has turned to the transfer market for a solution.

Both Wayne Bridge and Taye Taiwo have been linked with Arsenal but nothing concrete has emerged thus far and Wenger is remaining tight-lipped on who might arrive at the Emirates Stadium this month.

"At the moment we are exploring potential situations we can take advantage of but there is nothing concrete," Wenger told Arsenal Player.

"Hopefully the players will come back very quickly now. With Carl Jenkinson we had very good news on his scan and he is starting to practice again, we have Thomas Vermaelen who is the first to come back, Bacary Sagna is evolving well and Santos is doing well too. Let's hope they all come back quickly.

"All over the world we have our eyes and we look for good [players]."
