Premier League Transfer News: Arsene Wenger Says Almunia Is Not Leave Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has been frustrated by the current dip in form from Almunia and has dropped him to the bench for most of the season. The Arsenal boss has ruled out a move for the Keeper.

The Arsenal manager said: “There is a small chance. Yes, I have had a chat with him, but nothing is decided.

“We are in no-man’s land at the moment on that front.”

Wenger, meanwhile, indicated a decision would be made next week on the loan destination for Carlos Vela.

Wenger also spokeabout the chance of Carlos Vela going out on loan.

“We have a choice and that is basically the problem because he has the choice as well and we need him to feel comfortable to go where he would like to go,” said the Arsenal manager.

“At the moment we have requests from France, Spain, England and we have to sort that out.

“Because players of his quality on loan on a market that is very restricted money-wise, you have an abundance of clubs who want him. There are about three or four in the Premier League.”

Wenger added: “I would prefer him to stay in England, because it is easier for us to go and watch him, to come to conclusions as it is much easier to compare in the Premier League than if he goes to another country.”
