Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has denied reports claiming that the club have made a bid for Argentine striker Paulo Dybala, according to James Olley of the London Evening Standard.
Dybala, who is just 21-years-old, looks set for bright future in the game after proving his credentials at Palermo in Serie A this term.
In fact with 12 goals in Italy's elite division, the versatile forward is recognised as one of the leading youngsters in world football right now, however Wenger has insisted that his club aren't interested in the player's signature.
As well as Arsenal, Dybala has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea of late, but it remains to be seen as to whether he leaves Italy in the upcoming transfer window.
And, despite Wenger's claims that the club aren't interested in the talented forward, links may well continue over the coming weeks and months ahead of the opening of the transfer window.
For now, though, Wenger will be concentrating on securing a place in next year's Champions League by ending in this season's top four in the Premier League.
The Gunners can take a huge step towards their goal on Saturday afternoon as they play host to fifth placed Liverpool in what could prove an epic encounter.
Class of Giroud
On the striker scene, Wenger should be more than happy with the form of French striker Olivier Giroud.
Despite enduring an evening to forget against Monaco in the Champions League in February, Giroud has proved his critics wrong of late, and will no doubt prove key for the club in the latter stages of the campaign.
And as the club go in search of long term success, there's no reason why Giroud can't continue to excel for the Gunners. Perhaps, then, that's why Wenger isn't interested in landing Dybala anytime soon.
