    Wenger: Arsenal are gunning for the quadruple


    by ODN


    Arsene Wenger has warned that his Arsenal players fully intend to "go for it" as they target an unprecedented quadruple.

    The Gunners host Premier League relegation-battlers Wigan on Saturday looking to maintain the momentum from a 3-1 midweek FA Cup third-round replay win at Leeds, which followed the 3-0 drubbing of bottom club West Ham.

    Next week Arsenal, who last won a trophy in 2005, take on Championship strugglers Ipswich in the second leg of their Carling Cup semi-final looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit and stay on course for Wembley.

    The small matter of a Champions League showdown with Barcelona is also fast approaching, and Wenger knows his men must continue to produce their top form as they battle for success on four fronts.

    "We are motivated to give our best in all the competitions, that is for sure," the Arsenal manager said.

    "What can we win? We are not in a position to say that, we are in a position where we want to give our best and afterwards we will see where we end up."

    He added: "What is good is we are in mid-January and we are still in all four competitions, so let's go for it."

    Arsenal are short of cover at the centre of defence, but Wenger refused to be drawn on whether he was set for a £10 million swoop for Bolton's England international Gary Cahill.

    "At the moment, I cannot come out with any name," he said.

    "I think Gary Cahill is a very good player, but I cannot tell you more."
