Arsene Wenger has today denied reports that he is looking to sign Vincent Kompany from Hamburg. Apparently, the Arsenal boss is commenting on reports which have not been in the media, but it is still good to know that he will not make any additions to his defensive line-up this summer.
“I have known Kompany for a long time, since he was 16,” said Wenger.
“I keep following him but the story that we want him for next season is wrong.
“I know him to be very, very good but I have decided that defenders are no longer necessarily needed for next season.
“Therefore, he will not come.”
Wenger feels that his defensive line is strong enough to challenge for the Prmeier League title and he will focus on improving his squad in other areas. The departure of Matthieu Flamini has hit the Arsenal boss who has yet to move for a replacement, and should Alexander Hleb or Emmanuel Adebayor leave, the squad would be stretched.
