LONDON: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could launch a January transfer window raid to keep the Gunners’ Premier League title campaign on track after inspirational skipper Cesc Fabregas picked up a worrying injury.

Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Sunday, inspired by two goals from substitute Fabregas, left Wenger’s team just four points behind leader Chelsea with a game in hand.

However, some of the shine of victory over fourth-placed Villa was taken off by the sight of Fabregas going off with what appeared to be a recurrence of a hamstring injury sustained while scoring his and Arsenal’s second goal.

Wenger said he was now pondering bringing in new players in January.
