Arsene Wenger dismisses Ilkay Gundogan link
Arsene Wenger brushed off reports linking Arsenal with a January move for Ilkay Gundogan from Borussia Dortmund.
The Arsenal boss spoke to reporters at a pre-match press conference ahead of his sides clash with Manchester City on Sunday.
“He’s not a defender. At the moment we are more looking for the defensive department,” Wenger responded when asked about Gundogan.
The 24-year-old midfielder’s contract expires in 2016 and Dortmund want to avoid losing Gündoğan on a free transfer.
Gündoğan was one of the central figures of the Dortmund side that reached the final of the UEFA Champions League in the 2012-13 season.
Gündoğan has scored on goal in 12 appearances for Dortmund this season.
