Published Add your comment

Udinese have issued a warning to Arsenal - and others - that they have no intention of selling their star players in January.

Numerous clubs have been sniffing around the Stadio Friuli in recent months, but Giampaolo Pozzo has warned against any approaches.

"I request for the local media to stop talking about the transfer window because we have absolutely no intention of or need to sell," he said.

"In fact, we only have the need to act on the market regarding possible acquisitions. My ambition is to make this club grow."

According to The Mirror, the objects of desire for Arsenal at Udinese are Gabriel Torje and Samir Handanovic, but Arsene Wenger may struggle to prise them away during the winter.

The Gunners have been credited with an approach for Torje in the past, and Wenger appears to retain an interest in the 22-year-old Romanian midfielder.

Meanwhile, Slovenian goalkeeper Handanovic has reportedly been considered by Wenger has backup for current Arsenal No.1 Wojciech Szczesny.
