Arsenal's Arsene Wenger 'formally denies' Paris Saint-Germain talks

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has again distanced himself from rumours linking him with a move back to Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain.

Wenger, 67, has faced increased pressure from supporters and pundits to quit at the end of this season after another disappointing campaign that included a 10-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Wenger recently said reports of a switch to PSG were "fake news" and speaking with SFR Sport on Sunday after the 2-2 home draw with Manchester City, he denied the speculation.

"I formally deny it," the former Nagoya Grampus, Monaco and Nancy boss said when questioned on the truth of recent claims of talks between himself and the French champions' Qatari owners. "There has not been any contact."

The Wenger-PSG links were raised again by Canal+'s Olivier Tallaron on Saturday after Unai Emery's men thrashed Monaco 4-1 to win an unprecedented fourth consecutive Coupe de la Ligue title -- a record seventh in total -- at Parc OL.

Despite the convincing victory, Emery remains under pressure to guide Les Parisiens to the Ligue 1 title and the Coupe de France in order to be confident of his Parc des Princes future heading into the summer.
