The Gunners have been linked with making a move for Villa in the current transfer window as they look to bolster their attacking options.

However, when speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Wenger said he has "enough quality strikers" while confirming the Spain international is not for sale.

Wenger said: "Barcelona do not want to sell David Villa. They've made that very clear."

When asked if there is there any room for negotiation with Barca over Villa, the Frenchman replied: "No."

Wenger also suggested he is happy with his current options up front, adding: "What's important is to buy players who can strengthen the squad. Otherwise, you do nothing. We have enough quality strikers."

Barcelona's assistant coach Jordi Roura confirmed that the Spanish league leaders have no intention of selling the 31-year-old, whose third child was born on Monday.

"I have nothing on this," roura said in his press conference ahead of Barca's Copa del Rey match against Real Madrid on Wednesday. "Villa is our player and he will be until the end of the season."

Arsenal currently have former England captain David Beckham training with the club, as the midfielder looks to work on his fitness.
