Arsene Wenger on signing new players in January and the John Stones transfer rumours


Arsenal are not interested in signing new players, not yet at least, manager Arsene Wenger told reporters on Friday.

The Gunners will be without Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla for weeks after the two picked up injuries in last week's 1-1 draw against Norwich City.

But the Frenchman says the focus in on today's game against Sunderland.

"I ask my players to focus on tomorrow's game, I didn't ask the board anything, it's not the board who buys the players," Wenger declared.

"We are not after John Stones if that's what you want to know, we are focused on tomorrow's game.

"We are in December and we will just focus on tomorrow's game.

"At the moment, I'm more focused on responding tomorrow. I gave the answer last week in the press conference that we will be of course open and look outside.

"At the moment, what is more important is to show how strong we are mentally with what happened to us, and that we respond in a very positive way. We are at the beginning of December. December is a very important month for us.

"We have a team inside our club who select what's coming in, what we see. We are well organised on that front. The most important thing for us is the competitive side of our games and to win football games.

"I just believe when you have a target, you try to get after your target. That's not down to me to decide that, it's down to the player [if] he is interested or not to join us."
