Swansea City have denied receiving an offer from Arsenal for two of their most prized assets - Michu and Ashley Williams.

According to reports, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been eyeing up a £35 million double-raid on the Welsh outfit for their top scorer and club captain respectively, but Swansea insist they have had no approach from the Gunners, nor would they welcome one.

Wenger has come under-fire from a large section of the Arsenal fanbase having failed to significantly strengthen his squad this summer.

Saturday's 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Aston Villa compounded matters further, with Arsenal fans' patience being tested after the club's owners continue to break promises.

Despite assurances that there is money available to spend, Wenger continues to look for younger, cheaper alternatives, though in his defence, he has lodged big-money moves for Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain, only for both deals to fall through for differing reasons.

Michu and Williams have long been touted as potential Arsenal targets, but Swansea would loathe to lose their star players, particularly as there is little time to find suitable replacements ahead of the window slamming shut on September 2.

Speaking to thisissouthwales.co.uk, a Liberty stadium spokesperson said: "We’ve had no offers for any of our players."
