Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has ruled out a possible move for Chelsea skipper John Terry in the summer.
Terry announced on Sunday that he will be leaving the Premier League champions when his one-year contract extension expires in the summer.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, ahead of Arsenal’s EPL clash against Southampton on Tuesday, Wenger said Terry will only play for Chelsea if he remians in England.
“If he plays longer, it will be for Chelsea,” he says.
“Great player. And a great coach on the pitch. He has had a great career.”
Commenting ahead of the game against Southampton, Wenger said he has a full complement of his players except Tomas Rosicky, who got injured in Arsenal’s FA Cup win against Burnley.
“Everyone who played is available,” he says.
“The only problem is Rosicky picked up an injury.”
The French tactician debunked reports that Jack Wilshere suffered a new injury setback.
“That’s wrong information,” says the Frenchman.
“He’s looking quite positive. I spoke to Roy Hodgson and he’s progressing well.
“He will be back in four weeks.”
