Arsenal have been linked with a number of centre-backs in recent weeks and one of them that was being linked with a move to the Emirates was Matt Hummels.
The Bayern Munich defender has now revealed the Gunners were never interested in his services.
The German international recently completed a move to the Alianz Arena but was heavily linked with a move to the Emirates prior to the move.
The 27 year old claims there was no truth in the reports linking him with a move to Arsenal saying he was never contacted by Wenger.
He told German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung, as quoted by Daily Star : “I don’t have to beat about the bush, and pretend Arsenal wanted me.
“There was no offer. The same applies for Spain, there was always contact but no option right now.
“That’s why I now have made the fundamental decision to continue my career in Germany.”
The defender was also linked with a move to Manchester United but rejected a move to Old Trafford due to the Red Devils lack of European football.
The defender is currently with the German national team in the Euro 2016 championship. He has already completed a £30m move and agreed a five year deal with Bayern Munich.
