Arsene Wenger has insisted that Arsenal have not had any approach from Manchester United to sign Mesut Ozil after the Red Devils were linked with a move for the playmaker.

There have been reports in the British media in recent weeks suggesting that Ozil could be a target for the Red Devils as Jose Mourinho ponders bolstering his attacking options next year.

Ozil’s future at Arsenal has been a relentless source of speculation in recent months after both he and Alexis Sanchez entered into the final few months of their contracts at The Emirates.

The 29-year-old has been in good form for the north London side in recent weeks as he bids to help Arsenal break back into the top four.

Wenger was quizzed about Ozil’s situation at his weekly news briefing on Friday morning, but the Frenchman insisted that there had been no contact from Manchester United.

Asked about the rumours linking Ozil with a move to Old Trafford, Wenger told a news conference: “We have never been approached by Man United in any way, so I don’t see why that came up and who found that, that’s always something that’s been created.”

Ozil will be expecting to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon with a home clash against Newcastle United.

The Gunners head into this weekend’s round of Premier League games in seventh place in the table.
