Wenger wants Adebayor to stay

The Togo striker has been linked with a move to Italian giants AC Milan and Wenger has previously hinted he would be willing to sell.

“At the moment his future is at the club,” said Wenger at his pre-match press conference. “He has a long contract and we want to keep him at the club. I am hopeful I will be able to keep him.

“My gut feeling is he will be here [next season]. But I believe that, considering transfers and the money available, the less you talk the better it is.

“Let other people talk and do what you want. I believe the more everybody shuts up inside the club and doesn’t talk about anything and works hard is the best.”
