I've been scouring NewsNow today for answers to a couple of questions. Firstly, will Arsenal play tomorrow? And secondly, how did Nicklas Bendtner's tests go today?
Unfortunately, I didn't get an answer to my first inquiry, as it seems we'll have to wait till tomorrow for that. But I did come across some clarification on our worrisome injury situation upfront. Earlier this week, it had been reported that our activity in the transfer window would depend on how his fitness tests went upon his return from Denmark today. This is what Arsene had to say tonight:
'Nicklas is doing well in training, had a good session today, and the news is quite good. He'll join in with the first-team next week. His fitness is not too bad, actually, because he has worked hard. He can do the job [as a central striker], even if he's a different type of player to Van Persie. But it gives me a few options in there.'
'His return will influence [what we do]. If he'd been ruled out for two months, we wouldn't have had a choice but to sign someone. It would have been an absolute that we signed a striker. But now we can be a little bit more relaxed. We can take it or leave it if we don't find what we want.'
I share the same opinion as Arsene. If Bendtner wasn't ready to go by the 31st of January, our home match against Manchester United, then I believe we would have been forced to splash a significant amount of cash. Not only will it help to have a player of Bendtner's size playing in the central role, but this will allow Arshavin to vacate the position. It is clear Andrey hates playing up front on his own almost as much as he hates women drivers.
So, what do you think? Will Wenger now be able to use the available money on another position? Leave your comments below or vote in the poll on your right.
We'll post news on tomorrow's fixture as soon as it becomes available.
