Karim Benzema

Confirmed! Wenger personally affirms Benzema deal to Arsenal is closed

Arsenal may have the most potent attacking line in the Premier League if reports making the rounds are anything to go by.

Reports in Spain have suggested that Madrid are ready to offload the France international and have offered Arsenal and Chelsea the chance to sign the 29-year-old.

Asked why the Gunners are constantly linked with Benzema, Wenger replied: ‘Because he’s French.

‘Maybe there are some noises that he would leave Madrid, as I told you, there’s no need to buy a striker.’

Asked if Arsenal would consider a move if Benzema were to be made available at the end of the season, Wenger said: ‘In a summer window, that’s not my worry at the moment.’

Wenger also reiterated that Arsenal, along with the rest of the Premier League title challengers, have found it difficult to find high0quality players available this month.

‘On our front we have a big squad, we are not in a need to buy,’ said the Frenchman.

‘On the January front it has been very quiet, it shows the players who are available who can strengthen English teams, there are not many.
