Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has played down the club's interest in St-Etienne defender Loic Perrin, Brazilian Gabriel Paulista and Real Madrid star Isco.

The Gunners boss was in evasive mood when he was quizzed on the club's January transfer business on Friday morning.

After confirming Mesut Ozil, Mathieu Flamini and Aaron Ramsey have all returned to training – with the German international facing a slim chance of featuring against Stoke City on Sunday – Wenger also confirmed he intends to keep Joel Campbell in his squad despite strong suggestions of a loan move to Villarreal.

But when quizzed on possible additions to his squad, Wenger told reporters: "We are not on the case."

Wenger is also yet to decide whether he will recall Wojciech Szczesny to his starting line-up.

Szczesny was at fault for both Southampton's goals in the Gunners' 2-0 defeat at St Mary's on 28 December and his start to 2015 has worsened still further, following reports he had been fined by the club for smoking in the changing rooms following the game.

David Ospina started in the FA Cup third round victory over Hull City on Sunday and the Colombian could retain the number one spot this weekend.

"I haven't selected the first XI yet," Wenger told reporters, before playing down talk of a rift between himself and Szczesny.

"I like, personally, Wojciech as a person. When he makes a mistake, he stands up, and he has contributed a lot to good image of Arsenal."

On the smoking incident he added: "I don't want to talk about what happens in our dressing room because what happens stays in the dressing room. Apart from the fact it doesn't stay in the dressing room."
