Arsène Wenger will not be signing Brede Hangeland.

Earlier this summer, the manager expressed an interest in the Norwegian captain but did not make an offer to Fulham for his services.

And during Friday’s press conference, when asked about the possibility of signing Hangeland, Wenger put an end to the speculation.

“No we are not on this [Hangeland] case,” the manager said.
