Arsene Wenger says that he’s already working on transfer targets ahead of next season, but has denied that this gives any clue as to his future intentions.
The Gunners have recently been linked with Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac, and it’s known that a midfield purchase is high on the agenda for this summer.
At his press conference ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash with Leicester, the Arsenal manager was asked if he was working on recruitment for the 2017-18 campaign.
“Yes, of course,” he said, before it was put to him this might provide some insight as to what he’s going to do when his contract ends in June.
“No, I work until the last day of the season for the present and future. And the transfer targets are the future of the club and very important.
“It’s a bit secondary [my future], what’s important is the future of the club.”
Does a manager who is going work on transfers? It’d be unusual to say the least, but then nothing about this club would surprise you at the moment.
As you’ll all expect, he was also quizzed about his future, it went like this:
Q: I’ll get it out of the way early, any news?
Q: Nothing at all?
A: No … was it about the French elections that you want news?!
Q: About your future, anything to tell us?
Q: Any idea when you’ll tell us?
Q: And does it depend on what happens for the rest of the season.
So, there you go – we know as much as we did before!
