It has been widely reported that the Gunners had secured a deal with Spanish giants Madrid to take Morata on loan in January, but Wenger has denied any contact.
“There is no truth in that,” he said. “That is all I can say, I have not been in touch with them.”
However, Wenger played down such reports and instead focused on the impending return of forward Yaya Sanogo, who has been sidelined with a back injury.
“We have at the moment Yaya Sanogo who is a striker we brought in during the summer. He is coming back from injury in January so hopefully he will help us in the second part of the season,” said Wenger.
