Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins insists Arsenal targets Michu and Ashley Williams are not for sale.

Arsenal are under increasing pressure to make their first major signing of the summer after their opening-day defeat against Aston Villa.

Having missed out on a number of high-profile targets including Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez Arsenal fans vented their frustrations during the 3-1 defeat at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Now Arsene Wenger has sprung into life with deadline day under two weeks away, and is reportedly eyeing up moves for Swansea pair Michu and Ashley Williams, as well as Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye and Paul Pogba from Juventus.

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has insisted that neither Williams or Michu will be sold but that has not stopped suggestions that Arsenal are preparing a £35 million double swoop.

The Gunners' interest in Williams is long-standing but Jenkins says that neither the defender or Spanish forward Michu will be sold before the end of the transfer window.

"Nothing has changed," he said. There has been no contact, as far as our football club is concerned, in connection with anybody. And we wouldn’t welcome any bids.

‘The overriding point from our football club is that we are not looking to sell any of our players and they are not up for sale.

‘We want to strengthen our squad, we feel we’ve done that and we continue to look forward to the season ahead. That has not changed.’
