Arsene Wenger Rubbishes Reports Linking Jonny Evans To Arsenal
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted the club are not close to signing any new players amid reports linking the club to Jonny Evans.
Jonny Evans was a rumoured target for Manchester City in the summer and has since been linked with a number of other top-flight clubs, including Arsenal.
A report in The Sun suggested that the Northern Irishman is on the verge of a switch to the Emirates Stadium, but Wenger has denied that such a move is about to take place.
“No, I cannot give you any news on any transfer because we are not close to signing anybody,” the Frenchman said in his press conference after Arsenal lost 4-2 at Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup.
“We signed a Greek boy [Konstantinos Mavropanos] who looks quite good in training but apart from that, we have not done anything. Will we be out there to do something? Yes we will.”
