The Frenchman missed out on both the Uruguayan and Demba Ba in the summer transfer window, but he is keen to make things right in January.
Namely, with Olivier Giroud, Nicklas Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo the only available strikers, Wenger is keen to add another high-profile forward in the winter.
He is likely to try and make another move on Luis Suarez, who is clearly looking to leave Anfield despite suggesting he was happy at the club.
The controversial forward has yet to return into action as he serves a ten-match ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic, and it is important to note that Daniel Sturridge has done brilliantly in his absence.
That may be another reason why Liverpool might consider selling the wantaway forward in January, although it would take a substantial offer for the Reds to allow Suarez to join their Premier League rivals.
