Arsene Wenger has ruled out a move for Chelsea central defender David Luiz.
Luiz has dropped down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge this season and reports linked the defender with a January moved across London.
Asked specifically about Luiz, Wenger said: “I do not want to speak about any special name but these reports are wrong.
“We are open in any position for the exceptional player who can give us a plus, therefore of course it depends a little bit on the injuries as well and on the other hand, I must say it depends on extending the contracts of the players who are at the end of their contracts in June.
“We will have to take the consequences of these decisions and respond to it.”
But Wenger reiterated that the club will be active this month.
Much depends on the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil – no progress has yet been achieved on contract extensions despite now entering the final six months of their existing agreements.
