In what is both good and bad news for Arsenal fans depending on where you stand, METRO is reporting that manager Arsene Wenger could shelve plans of bringing in a new striker this January after being told that Nicklas Bendtner has recovered from his ankle injury sooner than expected.

Reports are suggesting that the Danish international is just days away from being back in training.

This news will of course be good for Arsene Wenger who has been tipped to sign a new striker this January, but given the managers reluctance to sign players during the winter window he may shelve his plans now until the summer.
