Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has denied that the club are looking to sign three of their reported targets in January.

Press speculation in the UK has linked the Gunners with a move for Ivorian international Salomon Kalou and Manchester United starlet Ravel Morrison, whilst South American reports had claimed that Matias Suarez had signed a pre-contract agreement with the club.

However, claims linking the Anderlecht striker with a move to the Emirates Stadium were dismissed by Wenger, as were those which suggested Kalou had flown back to England from the African Cup of Nations to discuss personal terms in north London.

"Ravel Morrison at Man United? No. We know him well,” Wenger said ahead of this afternoon's match at Swansea.

"No [to Kalou and Suarez as well]."

The Frenchman also spoke on striker Marouane Chamakh, with speculation linking the Moroccan international with a move away from the club this month.

However, Wenger insisted the striker's future remains with Arsenal, and that he'll return to the squad after his involvement in the African Cup of Nations.

"He is at the Africa Cup of Nations, nothing will happen there," added Wenger.

"Will he come back? Yes."

In his absence, club legend Thierry Henry has returned to bolster the attacking line, and the Frenchman is in contention to feature at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon.
