Arsene Wenger made no major signings in the summer before the start of the season except the free transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea.
But this January, they have already completed the signing of Mohamed Elneny to solve their mid-field crisis.
They are also liked to a number of European stars for a move this January and one such player was Dinamo Moscow forward Aleksandr Kokorin.
However the sporting director of the Russian outfit, Konstanitin Sarsania has told the Sport Ekspress that he is not expecting a bid from the London franchise for his forward.
Kokorin was tipped off as a transfer target for Arsenal after it was announced that he will leave Russia after the end of the season. Sarsania said the he expects the forward to leave the club this summer but told that Arsenal are not in the race to sign him.
I don’t know where Kokorin will continue his career,” Sarsania told Sport Ekspress. “There was interest on the part of Arsenal, but now there is not.”
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger also made it clear in the press statement before the Stoke Game that he is not in the market for a striker.
Talking to the media when asked about spending on a striker, he said that he is not going to buy one when he has Danny Welbeck who is soon coming back from injury.
