Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has warned Champions League opponents Napoli off skipper Thomas Vermaelen.

Vermaelen has struggled for first team action this season and is interesting Napoli.

But Wenger says: "He has a long contract and we want him to stay here."

On missing out on Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, he continued: "He's a dangerous player, it is better if we keep him away from the box. We must keep him quiet.

"Regret for the non-arrival of Pipita ? It is hard to talk before the game tomorrow, I'm glad we have Mesut Ozil and Higuain is in good hands with Rafa Benitez."
