Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini has sounded out a warning to his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger that he would not entertain any offers for Marcelo Brozovic regardless of the amount offered.
The Croatian has been continuously linked with a move to the Emirates with several reports claiming Arsenal were waiting for his move to San Siro to be made permanent before making their offer.
Cash strapped Inter who are being punished for breaking Financial Fair Play rules were expected to sign the midfielder for £8million from Dynamo Zagreb and then offload him to the gunners for £18.5million.
“Brozovic is integrating really well,” Mancini said. “I think if he were to continue like this he would become one of the best ever.
“We don’t want to sell him, even in the face of a great offer. He must work, but he has incredible quality.
“No one has asked to be sold. For the moment, everything remains as it is.
The Inter boss later showed his frustrations at the financial situation the club find themselves
“In order to improve this team we need money, but with Financial Fair Play we can’t move,” he added.
“It seems difficult to spend a lot of money on big players.”
