Udinese general director Pietro Leonardi has rejected reports linking midfielder Gokhan Inler with a transfer to Arsenal.
Inler joined Udinese from FC Zurich last summer and impressed during his debut term at Stadio Friuli.
Recent speculation had suggested The Gunners were lining up an offer for the Switzerland international.
However, Leonardi has refuted the claims, insisting 24-year-old Inler is not set to join Arsenal in the Premier League.
Leonardi said: "This is an absurd story that usually would not warrant a response.
"Nothing is true and the player has even denied this. It is false"
