Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has dismissed reports that the north London club is interesting in signing Manchester City defender John Stones.
Earlier in the month reports suggested that Arteta is keen to reunite with Stones who he has coached for three years at City. The England international joined the Citizens in the summer of 2016, same time as Arteta. The Spaniard has revealed that he is not planning an imminent reunion with Stones.
"No, no truth at all," he said during a press conference on Wednesday.
The Spaniard also dismissed reports that north Gunners are chasing for the signature of AC Milan midfielder Frank Kessie.
"No truth at all at the moment," Arteta replied.
