Arsenal rule out transfer move amid speculation

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has denied reports the club want to sign Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic.

The Gunners have been linked with several new strikers this month, after winger-come-forward Theo Walcott was ruled out for the remainder of the season through injury.

And whilst the Frenchman has admitted he is looking at brining in new faces this month, he has ruled out a move for the Juve attacker: “We are looking at potential possibilities for us to get someone in, but we are not especially in for Vucinic,” Wenger told the London Evening Standard.

“Some people have visual capacities that I don’t have. We are not on any special case. I would love to announce something that would excite you and me, but I don’t have the possibility to do it.”

The Gunners boss relied on a brace from Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla to defeat Fulham on Saturday, as his side remained on top of the Premier League table.

With Walcott injured, Frenchman Olivier Giroud is the club’s lead striker, with Dane Nicklas Bendtner close to returning to the bench after an ankle injury. But whilst rumours have come up that the Gunners have met with Vucinic’s agent, it seems Arsenal’s squad will remain the same for the time being.
