Arsene Wenger believes Hector Bellerin signing a new long-term contract shows that Arsenal are not a selling club.
The 21-year-old, who has excelled for the Gunners since breaking into the side in 2014, committed his future to the club on Monday.
“It just sends out the message that the media have to find a different name of somebody who wants to leave the club,” Wenger said.
“Overall, I think it shows that the players we have educated here are committed. That is what we want.
“When you give young boys a chance to play in the first team, you want them to commit to the club and that is an important quality we have at this club.
“So we are very happy when they commit.”
Arsenal have already sealed their qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League and can win the Group A with a game to spare if they beat Paris Saint-Germain – who also have 10 points – at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.
“We have done the job in a convincing way. It is a luxury to be qualified after four games,” Wenger said. “If we finish the job after five games that will mean we will have done the job really well.
“Last year we had to battle until the end.”
