Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has dismissed reports suggesting that Midfielder Sami Khedira will leave Juventus to join the Gunners in this summer’s transfer window.
Emery has now said that the North London club are not interested in signing Khedira from the Serie A champions this summer.
He also said that Arsenal are only interested in signing players like Lille winger, Nicolas Pepe, who will improve his side’s squad ahead of next season.
The 32-year-old made just 10 Serie A appearances last season due to a series of injuries which kept him out for the majority of the campaign while his future in Turin looks uncertain.
“Khedira is a very good player but this is the first time I have heard his name mentioned,” Emery was quoted by The Express UK as saying.
Emery added: “Nicolas Pepe is a very good player and we are thinking only about signing players who will really, really improve this squad and also give us different conditions.
“There are different players on the table with the possibility we can achieve their signature.
“At the beginning of the market, we were thinking to do one center-back, one full-back and one winger. We are still thinking the same way.
“Really I want a better team than last season with only new players who can improve the squad and help us to achieve our ambitions.”
