Arsene Wenger has insisted that Arsenal “are not in transfer mode” as the summer window approaches.

The Gunners have inevitably been linked with a host of players in recent weeks as Wenger looks to bolster his squad and transform the north Londoners into genuine title contenders for next season.

Arsenal have been linked with moves for the likes of James Milner and Raheem Sterling in recent days as Wenger aims to add more quality to his squad.

However, the Frenchman remained typically coy when quizzed about his plans for the summer window during a news conference on Tuesday morning.

“At the moment we are not in transfer mode. We want to finish well our season,” Wenger told a news conference at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground.

“We have put in a massive effort to come back in a potential good position and we have to focus to finish well.

“After the effort we have put in It would be stupid not to finish well.

“I do not bid for anybody at the moment. in the summer I will bid for people yes but at the moment we are not in transfer mode at all. I don’t like to lie.”

Wenger’s Arsenal side host Sunderland at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night knowing that a draw will secure a top-three finish and a direct route into the group stage of next season’s Champions League.

The Gunners were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United on Sunday.
