Arsene Wenger has played down rumours that link French wingman, Franck Ribery with a summer move to Ashburton Grove.

Le Boss says we have enough players already to fill that position.

When pushed on the possible signing of Ribery, Wenger said, “There are plenty of players in the world who want to join us’

“I am more concerned with turning down people who want to join us than negotiating with players who want to go.’

“If you look at the flanks we have [Tomas] Rosicky, who is not an average player, [Alexander] Hleb, [Jose Antonio] Reyes, [Theo] Walcott… also Ljungberg – where do I put a player like Ribery?”

Playing down links or covering his arse? You decide.
