Press conference

Wenger on his January window plans and Luiz

With the January transfer window now open, it was to be expected that Arsene Wenger would be quizzed about it in his first press conference of 2018.

The Arsenal manager was asked what positions he is prioritising, and also cleared up some of the rumours already circulating.

‘When’ is very difficult to say, because we are out there and look to do some things, but when we will do is very difficult to say because it is not only on us.

on what positions he has in mind…
We are open in any position for the exceptional player who can give us a plus. Of course it depends a little bit on the injuries as well and on the other hand I must say it depends on who will manage to extend the contracts of the players who are at the end of their contracts in June. It will depend on that as well because we will have to take the consequences of these decisions and respond to it.

on the reports of interest in Luiz and Lemar…
No, I do not want to speak about any special name but these reports are wrong.

on whether reports on Luiz are wrong…
