The French striker has been touted as a possible target for the Gunners in the summer transfer window as Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options.
We are focused on the end of the season, not on strikers
But Wenger, whose side face Newcastle at Emirates Stadium on Monday, insisted that his only priority is helping Arsenal finish the campaign on a high.
“He is a good striker,” said Wenger. “But we are focused on the end of the season, not on strikers.”
“It is sad he wasn’t given time. I wish him well,” said Wenger. “It’s part of the modern game – there’s no time and that’s a big threat for our game.
“If you want quality people in our job you have to give them time. That means the quality of the coaching will not be as good as you don’t have the time.
“We live in a society where the quick intelligence takes over the slow intelligence. Everything is immediate.”
