Arsene Wenger has told Sky Sports that Arsenal have watched Schalke’s Lewis Holtby but does not say that the club are interested in signing the player.
Speaking about the player, who is out of contract with the German side in the summer and will not be renewing his deal, Wenger said
We have looked at Holtby and have played against him.
Our scouts are kept on alert and the quality of the scouting is linked with that.
With Liverpool and Tottenham also being linked heavily with the player it is doubtful that Arsene would be upfront with any concrete interest in the player however from what he has said I am unsure if we seem to be pursuing an interest in the player.
Of course, it is hard to know for sure and Holtby has been linked with a move to Arsenal long before the other clubs made an appearance but I don’t feel like this one will happen although I’m not entirely sure why.
There’s every chance that I’m totally wrong of course. This happens often.
