Arsene Wenger on transfers and making a move for Raheem Sterling


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to be drawn into speculation over whether or not Arsenal will sign Liverpool striker Raheem Sterling.

The 20-year-old has rejected a £100,000-a-week contract and is expected to leave Anfield during the summer transfer window.

But the Frenchman insists the focus is on taking all three points, on Wednesday, against Sunderland.

"At the moment we are not in a transfer mode," Wenger said in reply to whether there is interest for Raheem Sterling.

"We want to finish our season well. We have put massive effort in since the start of the season to come back into a potentially good position in the Premier League, and now we need to focus on finishing well.

"We have put so much effort in that it would be stupid not to finish the job well. The transfer period comes after the FA Cup final.

"I do not bid for anybody at the moment. In the summer we will bid for people. At the moment we are not in transfer mode at all.

"Twenty-nine is not old [for James Milner but] as I just told you we are in front of a big game tomorrow and we are not at all focused on that.

"We have a big squad at the moment and it is not especially… we do not need a number of players. Contract talks at the moment are not in my mind at all. What I want is to finish well the season, and after I will make my decisions."
