The Catalans have long been linked with a move for the right-back - who signed a contract renewal until 2023 in November - and recent reports suggested they are ready to table a formal offer for the 21-year-old.

Bellerin himself has also commented this term that he is not interested in a return to Catalonia and Wenger says he cannot see how a deal could go through.

"Barcelona's alleged interest in Bellerin is very hard to take seriously," Wenger said at a news conference.

"He has just signed a new contract and still has many years left on his contract."

The Arsenal boss also addressed rumours that his right-hand man Boro Primorac is ready to walk away from Emirates Stadium.

"That is a complete invention," Wenger insisted.

"People just take information without checking it these days. Fake news."
