Hernandez has now been linked with a return to the English Premier League, with Arsenal and Liverpool reportedly keen on the striker's services.

Arsenal have already added Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny to their squad during the January transfer window and has now commented on the speculation involving "Chicharito".

"No. We have Danny Welbeck coming back now and Alexis Sanchez is back,” Wenger told reporters.

“We have Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott, so you would not understand again why I don’t play Giroud and I play Hernandez. We have the quality and the number of players that we need.”
