Arsene Wenger’s four-word reply when asked about Arsenal’s next signing
Arsene Wenger has a blunt response to the latest Arsenal transfer rumour...
Arsene Wenger has remained typically coy when quizzed about the transfer speculation linking Arsenal with a bid to sign Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia this summer.
The north London side have been widely reported to be closing in on the signing of the Germany international as Wenger looks to bolster his defensive options ahead of the new Premier League season.
Arsenal have reportedly stepped up their interest in Mustafi after Gabriel Paulista was ruled out of action for a number of weeks along with fellow centre-half Per Mertesacker.
Wenger was quizzed about the speculation linking Mustafi with a transfer to The Emirates at his pre-match news conference on Friday morning.
However, the Arsenal boss did not give anything away in typical fashion, as reported by Sky Sports News HQ journalist Kaveh Solhekol.
