Wenger left his position as the manager of Arsenal in the summer after 22 years at the club, winning the Premier League three times.
According to reports, the Frenchman met with Al-Khelaifi last week in Qatar with rumours speculating he could be on the verge of taking a job at the French club.
However, the club’s president has ruled out Wenger joining in the near future.
‘I have a very good relationship with Arsene,’ Al-Khelaifi said. ‘I am close to him, I have known him for a long time.
‘He is a magnificent manager and coach. He has a very complete and exquisite knowledge of football.
‘But we have a sporting director, Antero Henrique, who I believe in greatly. I am hearing non-stop in the media that Arsene will take his job. It is too much.

‘Let us get on with our work please. Antero is doing a very good job. He will continue with us. He stays here.’
PSG are currently managed by former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel, who is currently in his first year of his contract at the year.
Tuchel has guided the club to the top of the Ligue 1 table, and they look set to win the championship with a 14-point gap behind them and closest challengers Lille.
