Ahead of the mouthwatering North-London derby this weekend, Arsenal FC manager Arsene Wenger has dismissed any rumours of the Gunners’ interest in Harry Kane, claiming that they stopped looking at Kane as an option ever since he signed for Tottenham Hotspur.
Arsenal will be looking to get back to winning ways after a huge setback in midweek in the Champions League. But the spotlight seems to be on Spurs striker Harry Kane, who has been linked with a move to the Emirates recently.
Harry Kane to Arsenal?
Pictures of Harry Kane in an Arsenal shirt have been circulating over the internet of late, and has led people to believe there could be a possible move to Arsenal FC for the Englishman some time down the line. However, Arsene Wenger dismissed any such rumours, declaring that the move will never happen.
“He has great qualities and he will make a great career,” the Gunners’ manager is quoted as saying by the Telegraph.
“But once a player is at Spurs you don’t even consider him any more.”
Arsene Wenger suggests their Premier League form will continue
After the 5-1 mauling by Bayern Munich in the Champions league in midweek, Arsenal’s confidence could easily be shaken, but Arsene Wenger insists the Premier League is a different competition and the defeat in Munich will not affect their approach to Sunday’s derby.
“It was a disappointing result on Wednesday night, but before that we did extremely well in the Premier League so we will try to continue from one competition from the other,” Wenger said.
“I believe that in the Premier League we have a strong confidence and focus and that is what we want to reproduce on Sunday against Tottenham. It is always a game where the commitment and nervous force will be important.”
An exciting match-up
This is a game that never disappoints. No matter where the two teams are placed in the league, the North-London derby always proves to be an entertaining match-up, providing end-to-end action.
Arsenal’s fate in the Champions League will have to decided by the other teams, and their wait for an elusive Champions League trophy could be another year long.
Tottenham, on the other hand, will be looking to squeeze into the top four, and a win against their arch rivals could see them stamp their credentials for a Champions League spot, particularly in light of Chelsea’s faltering season.
