Arsene Wenger says that he’s not in for alleged long term Arsenal target Vincent Kompany, or for any defender for that matter.

Le Boss admitted that he has watched Kompany for a long time, but will not sign him, or any other defender for that matter, this summer. A statement many Arsenal fans may frown upon.

‘I have been interested in Vincent Kompany ever since he was 16, but I am not interested in him this year, There is nobody I need for my team’s defensive department.’ Claim the gaffer

‘I still follow Kompany’s progress all the time and I know him very, very well. But he will not be an Arsenal player next season – and you can print that.’

‘I know all the good Belgian players. Arsenal are following a number of them with great interest, although I won’t name names.’
