Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has played down talk of bids for Barcelona striker David Villa and Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels.

Wenger stressed Arsenal had not lodged any formal bids with their reported targets.

He said: "We have been linked with David Villa, like Chelsea, but there's nothing concrete there. We are not on the case."

On Hummels, the Gunners boss said: "No, I can't imagine Dortmund selling their defenders in the middle of the season anyway and we have not made any approach there."
