The Gunners are said to have made a renewed bid for German international Draxler as they seek to complete a deal before the transfer window closes.

But Wenger, speaking after Friday night's 4-0 FA Cup fourth-round victory over Coventry, denied a deal will happen.

"That is an illusion. There is nothing happening, honestly no," Wenger said.

"We don't need to take players on the flanks - we have 17 players on the flanks."
