Arsène Wenger has refuted suggestions he is in the race to
sign Nicolas Anelka - or any other striker for that matter.
Media reports have linked the Bolton forward with a return to the Club where, at just 18, he established himself as a lethal marksman in the 'double' campaign of 1997/98. However, it is appears these are inaccurate.
After the 3-0 win against Geclerbirligi on Thursday, Wenger was asked if there was any truth in the story.
"No," he replied. "We have signed Eduardo. We don't collect strikers, we buy the strikers we need. This season, we also expect Nicklas Bendnter to step forward and show us some aspects of his talent."
