Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal will not be moving for Leicester winger, Riyad Mahrez, in January.

Wenger has given his latest response to recent rumours that Arsenal could reignite their interest in Mahrez in January and it’s not looking likely. In fact, when asked, the Frenchman merely said, “No.”

Well that’s that then.

 The Gunners have been linked with Mahrez again recently after allegedly trying to sign him during the summer. However, Arsenal eventually turned their attention to Monaco’s Thomas Lemar, who Wenger also insists the club won’t be moving for in January.

“No. At the moment, I have a big squad,” he said.

“The problem for me is to keep everyone together until the end of the season.

“Do we go on the transfer market in January? I don’t know yet.”

Arsenal need a replacement for Alexis Sanchez. However, if you look at the manager’s history when it comes to making big signings in January, it’s looks as if Gooners will have to wait until next summer.
