Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has denied the club are any closer to selling striker Robin van Persie after becoming irritated by questions about the Dutchman's future.

Wenger was pressed about Van Persie by journalists after his side had lost 2-0 to Premier League champions Manchester City on the latest leg of their Far East tour. City and rivals Manchester United have been linked with a move for the unsettled Arsenal captain and Wenger has become annoyed by the speculation.

Several newspapers quoted Wenger as saying: "We have talked about Van Persie. I have talked about Van Persie and I'm not talking about that question any more."
