Hector Bellerin insists Arsenal do not need to do any business in January

A spate of injuries has led to calls for Arsene Wenger to make some signings in January.

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin does not believe that the Gunners need to do any business in January, despite the injury problems currently keeping several first-team players on the sidelines, the Daily Star report.

The Spaniard insisted that the north London side are already strong enough, and have the depth required to cope with injuries, but added that any new teammates would be well-received.

"There is a lot of quality in the team and I do not think we need any new players," he said.

"If someone new comes he will be welcomed but I think we have a very strong squad, with good replacements for every position," he added.

The calls for Arsene Wenger to spend in January have become more intense over the past few weeks, with the likes of Francis Coquelin and Theo Walcott being struck down with injuries. 

Despite the problems, Arsenal had begun the season in fine form, and, following champions Chelsea's dreadful start, it seemed like this year may well be one of their best chances to end their wait for the league title.

However, a surprise defeat to West Bromwich Albion in their last league outing suggested that the injuries are starting to seriously stretch the squad. 

As well as how well they respond to those injuries, it could be whether Wenger does decide to open the chequebook that decides the destination of the Premier League title.
