Wenger was asked for an update on developments after victory over Fenerbahce in their Champions League qualifier.
"Look we cannot speak about players who are under contract with other clubs. When players are under contract at another club, they have to respect the contract. If you want to buy the player, you have to speak to the club first. I think we have all to accept that."
