Wenger cools Zlatan talk

Premiership

Ibrahimovic's contract with Paris Saint-Germain will expire at the end of the season, prompting widescale speculation over his future.

The 34-year-old, who has netted 27 Ligue goals for the French champions this season, has been linked with the Gunners and Manchester United among other sides.

Wenger, however, said: "At the moment, no - we are not on that case. We have other worries at the moment in the short term and we are not on Zlatan's case.

"Even at 34 he has a great season with Paris Saint-Germain. But at the moment you can understand that my priority before the Everton game is not to look at possible signings next season in the transfer market.

"I'm just surprised by the name you forward me and at the moment we are not thinking of signing anybody."

The Frenchman feels he has quality strikers at his disposal.

"It's always very difficult to blame one or two individuals when you don't score as many goals. I believe we have quality strikers and, if you produce the quality of our game like we did in Barcelona, then our strikers will score goals.

"We are one of the best, if not the best, in creating goalscoring opportunities in the Premier League if you look at the numbers.

"Maybe we need to improve the quality of those chances and look at confidence as they are maybe a bit desperate to score, but I believe we have quality strikers."
