Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger keeping tight-lipped over top midfielder rumours


Manager Arsene Wenger has rubbished rumours linking Arsenal to Leicester City attacking midfielder Riyad Mahrez.

The Gunners have endured a frustrating season as they continue the fight to finish in the Top Four.

Fans have been vocal in their criticism of the side but the Frenchman is only focused on finishing the season before turning his attention to the summer transfer window.

"No, [we are not interested in Riyad Mahrez] and even if there was I would not speak about that at this stage of the season [out of] respect to Leicester," Wenger revealed.

"These two players [Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez] have two years on their contracts at the end of the season. We are not in a hurry. We are talking and the players are very keen to stay."
