Cape Town - Arsenal's injured midfielder Jack Wilshere feels his side need not sign any players in the January transfer window as the squad is strong enough to compete for top honours.

"I don't think so," the 23-year-old said when asked if the club need to strengthen the squad in January.

"Defensively we look good. We've got Gabriel who has really grown up. Last season, he was settling in. He is really suited to the Premier League.

"We've also got myself and Danny Welbeck who should be back round January and make the team stronger."

Arsenal will hope to keep the pressure on Manchester City at the top when they travel to Swansea City on Saturday.
