Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to clarify the club’s situation regarding reported interest in a Russian international when speaking ahead of the Europa League clash with CSKA Moscow last night.

The Frenchman has long been reported to be interested in the services of midfielder , who is starring man for CSKA, and refused to rule out a summer swoop for the World Cup hopeful this summer.

Quoted by Football.LondonWenger responded to a question about Arsenal’s interest in Golovin by stating:

“You can understand that I if I speak to you about respect, that I do not want come out and speak about transfers of some CSKA Moscow players to Arsenal. That is not the case and the moment and I don’t think it would be appropriate to talk about something like that the day before the game.”

Arsenal will certainly keep a close eye on Golovin over the course of the two-legged Europa League clash and will be wary of the threat that he presents.
