Arsene Wenger has insisted that Kolo Touré's transfer to Manchester City is not done and dusted yet, although City remain confident they can push it through by the end of the week and take manager Mark Hughes' spending this summer close to £100m. Talks between City and Arsenal are ongoing and Wenger has conceded the 28-year-old defender could leave for around £15m.

Touré played for Arsenal on Monday in a friendly in Hungary and Wenger said: "We will see what's happening in the next 24 hours, nothing is decided. We have seven centre-backs and I have to play some in midfield but Kolo is a very good player and we will see what happens. I am more focused on getting everybody fit for the start of the season but we are looking at opportunities [to sign players] as well, there are still some pre-season games to see what we need. When the time comes we will do something."
