Olivier Giroud will be allowed to leave Arsenal in January if the club can sign a replacement, says Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal are thought to be locked in negotiations with Borussia Dortmund over a fee for Gabon global Aubameyang.

"Maybe one or two young players will go out on loan somewhere, but the experienced side of the squad will remain the same unless somebody comes in".

"I can't give you any special name, but will we still recruit somebody?"

Giroud has been heavily linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund this month as part of the deal Arsenal hope will bring Aubmeyang to the Emirates Stadium - a report in Germany this week claimed that an offer €60m plus the French striker would do the trick.

Wenger says France worldwide Giroud, who was linked with Borussia Dortmund this week but is likely to stay, is set to be in contention for the game after recovering from his hamstring injury that has kept him out since the middle of December but the clash will come too soon for Welbeck.

"The vibes I get from his commitment, his focus, his desire and achievement with the team - he behaves like someone who is completely focused and ready to commit. I'm of the opinion that before the end of the season will be hard for him", Wenger added. While Carroll and Barnes aren't exactly the first players you would think of to lead the line at the Premier League champions. "We have to see about that".
