Two top-class available full-backs deny Arsenal contact

Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he needs to bring in an emergency left-back on loan this month and the two most high profile defenders available at the moment have denied that Arsenal have made any contact with them or their clubs.

Aly Cissoko has made it clear that he is not getting enough game time at Lyon and is keen on a move to the Premier League. He said: “This week, I will speak with the Lyon staff. I reckon I prefer England, but for now, there is nothing done.”
