‘He’s a player that we have looked at, but the rest is only speculation,’ said Arsene Wenger.

‘I am open to get some more signings, but it is not easy to find the players who can strengthen our squad, because we have top-quality players.

‘There are two ways to improve always, analyse what we did well last season and what we did not so well and improve that, and then you can bring new players in.
