Arsene Wenger has been tracking Belgium defender Vincent Kompany progress for some time but does not want to add any more players to his backline this summer.

Wenger admits he admires kompany’s qualities but says the time is not right to bring him to Arsenal.

“I have known Kompany for a long time, since he was 16,” explained the Gunners chief to Sportwereld.”

“I keep following him but the story that we want him for next season is wrong.”

“I know him to be very, very good but I have decided that defenders are no longer necessarily needed for next season.”

“Therefore, he will not come.”
