The Gunners boss was asked about Borussia Dortmund young gun Mario Gotze at today's pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow night's Champions League clash in London but was non-committal when speaking about a potential transfer.
"We have a big squad and we are not after anybody," said the Frenchman.
"Gotze is a very good player. I can understand there is a lot of interest in him around Europe.
"On our side, I do not think this is the best time to talk about it.
"We play against Dortmund tomorrow and we must concentrate on the game, not transfers."
