New Delhi: Arsenal's long standing manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly ready to discuss the contentious topic doping in football with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD).

Wenger, 66, however is confident that there is doping in English football, but would be happy to discuss the issue with authorities.

"I am sure that not one club in England is trying to dope its players... I am absolutely 100% convinced that nobody tries to do that as a club," a report in BBC quoted the Frenchman.

But when asked about the possibility of talks with UK Anti-Doping chief Nicole Sapstead, he added: "I have more desire than time but I am always happy to help if I can."

Always an advocate of of advances in drug-testing in football, Wenger criticised UEFA's regulations after Dinamo Zagreb's Arijan Ademi was banned for four years for failing a test following his side's Champions League win over Arsenal in September.
