Arsenal was linked with a surprise more for Everton’s John Stones over the week.
Stones who was initially linked with a move to Chelsea over the summer could not make the move as Everton stood ground to keep their priceless asset.
Wenger was clear with journalists at his club’s Colney training ground this morning insisting he‘s not interested in signing John Stones
He said: “I ask my players to focus on tomorrow’s game. I did not ask the board anything. It’s not the board who buys the players anyway.
“We are not after John Stones, if that’s what you want to hear. We are focused on tomorrow’s game.”
“At the moment, I’m more focused on responding tomorrow,” he said. “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.
“Your phone is busy every day from people who propose players, so that’s an aspect. 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.”
