Arsène Wenger has rubbished speculation suggesting Manuel Almunia is leaving the Club.

Someone claiming to be the Spaniard’s agent this week stated the goalkeeper is seeking a January move back to La Liga but as far as Wenger is aware, Almunia doesn’t even have an agent.

The 33-year-old is currently nearing a return to action after a troublesome elbow injury and any talk of a transfer is news to the manager, who fully expects the 33-year-old to remain at Arsenal.

“I heard it is his agent who talks about that but at the moment he has no agent.

“So I cannot see what kind of agent can talk on his behalf. We never talked about him leaving, never.

“That is not my concern before a big game.”
