Wenger Denies Interest In Morata And Pato

By on December 3, 2013

Arsene Wenger has dismissed speculation claiming he’s made moves for Alexandre Pato and Alvaro Morata this week.

The boss held his pre-match press conference this morning ahead of Wednesday night’s clash with Hull City and he was predictably quizzed about links with the strike duo.

Recent reports have claimed that Corinthians rejected a £6.6m bid from Arsenal for Brazilian striker Pato, while newspapers this morning are reporting that we’ve agreed a deal to take Real Madrid hitman Morata on a six-month loan in January.

However, Wenger played down these reports, insisting he has not made any contact with Madrid over Morata and also denied any interest in signing Pato.

Of course this will come as no surprise to many Arsenal fans, as Wenger rarely gives much away when it comes to transfer targets, so we’ll just have to see how things progress over the coming weeks to see if anything comes of these rumours.
