Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has moved to distance himself from reports that he could be about to swoop for Corinthians ace Pato or Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata.
Arsenal are likely to be in the market for a new forward in January in order to provide back up for Olivier Giroud.
According to reports this week, the Gunners have launched £6.5 million bid to bring Pato back to Europe, and are also in talks to land Morata, also a target for Tottenham, on loan from the Bernabeu.
However, speaking ahead of Arsenal's Premier League fixture against Hull tomorrow, Wenger insisted he wasn't looking to sign either player.
When asked if he had spoken to Madrid about Morata, the Arsenal boss said: "There is no truth in that, that is all I can say. I have not been in touch with them."
When quizzed about a deal for Pato, he simply said: "No".
Arsenal have started the season brilliantly and sit top of the Premier League, however they will need to find back-up if they are to maintain their charge for a first trophy since 2005.
Reinforcements are needed most in attack where, behind Giroud, Wenger can only call upon Nicklas Bendtner, who hasn't scored a goal for Arsenal since 2011.
