Arsène Wenger has ruled out a January bid for Eden Hazard.

The 20-year-old Belgian international has been linked with Arsenal recently. But Hazard operates in an attacking midfield role for Lille and Wenger says he is fully-stocked there.

“In the offensive department we have many players,” said the Frenchman. “If I give Carlos Vela and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas out on loan it is because we have what it takes.

“At the end of the season we'll have a look at the situation but at the moment it's completely ruled out.”
