Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel has played down reports linking Matthias Ginter with a move to Arsenal.
Ginter was left out of Germany’s squad for Euro 2016 but is viewed by Dortmund as a potential heir apparent to Mats Hummels, who was sold to Bayern Munich.
The 22-year-old, who joined Dortmund from Freiburg in 2014, did not travel with the rest of the squad on their preseason tour to China, reportedly because of an infection.
“With Ginter, I think everything is said,” Tuchel said. “German clubs wanted to sign him and now English clubs want to sign him.
“I don’t know if everything is true or it is just rumours but we made our point clear – Matthias is our player and stays our player.”
