Arsenal manager Wenger stays silent on CSKA Moscow striker Golovin

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has refused to comment on the mooted transfer of CSKA Moscow striker Aleksandar Golovin.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a switch to the Emirates since last year. He'll get a chance to showcase his skills in front of his potential employers in their Europa League quarter-final first leg in north London on Thursday night.

But speaking before the game, Wenger wasn't going to be drawn on speculation surrounding the Russian starlet.

Wenger said: "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."
