Arsene Wenger says he has not spoken to West Ham with regards to a bid for midfielder Francis Coquelin.

The Arsenal manager, talking to the media this lunchtime confirmed that he had not received any indication from West Ham that they are about to make an offer for the 26-year-old Frenchman, as widely suggested earlier this week.

However Wenger did admit that the player could well leave the Emirates during the January transfer window.

"Itís a possibility but nothing is decided," he said during his pre-match press conference, before adding that "we have had no contact with West Ham".

And in other transfer news, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte refused to rule out a move for West Ham striker Andy Carroll.

When asked about Chelsea's purported interest in the big forward, he replied: "The club knows very well which are the position we can improve.

"I am very happy to work with my players and the commitment of my players. If there is a possibility to improve the squad the club knows very well."
