Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he is not interested in signing Southampton youngster Gareth Bale.
Bale is the subject of intense speculation
The 17-year-old is attracting the interest of a host of clubs, with Manchester United and Tottenham believed to have had bids rejected.
But Wenger insists he is not about to join the race to sign the £10m-rated Wales international defender.
Wenger told Arsenal TV Online: "I like the player but we already have two left-backs here."
Bale has recently turned down Southampton's offer of a one-year extension to his contract.
Spurs are believed to have failed with a £6m bid for Bale and Manchester United's £8m offer was also rejected.
Saints boss George Burley is desperate to keep Bale - at least until the end of the season - but is resigned to losing the player at some stage.
