Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama has denied having contact with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger over a move to north London this summer.

Quotes attributed to the Kenya international by The Sun newspaper said that Wenger had contacted the player claiming he would like to sign him in time for the 2015/16 season and help realise his dream of once again playing in the Champions League

"Wenger has been talking about me. He has let it be known he would like to sign me this summer," Wanyama told The Sun.

"Arsenal are a great club and I'd love to play Champions League football as I loved being on that stage with Celtic.

"But we've had a fantastic season at Saints and I want to stay focused on helping the club qualify for Europe. Then we'll see where I end up in the summer."

But the 23-year-old has reacted angrily to the story and has taken to Twitter to quash speculation he is ready to joining Arsenal.

"I have to make it clear that I have not said what [h]as been brought up today. [I] am professional and will never say that. To cut the story short [I] have never spoken to Wenger.

Despite Wenger having often been criticised for not having a genuine holding midfielder in his squad, the permanent promotion of Francis Coquelin into the Gunners first team has recently eased the Frenchman's selection dilemma.

Wanyama has previously been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal but that speculation has cooled since he swapped Celtic for Southampton in the summer of 2013 with the player a key component of Ronald Koeman's side.

Southampton have recently dropped out of the race to qualify for next season's elite club competition, with the Saints currently eight points behind fourth place Manchester City with just five matches remaining of the current season.
