Karim Benzema was Arsenal’s transfer target

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken about his contract extension and warned that he will nor hurry.

Wenger has also been discussing Arsenal’s transfer plans and Karim Benzema, who, as in many recent windows, has been mentioned in the media as a potential target.

“Because he is French?” is Wenger’s response. “Maybe there are some noises he will leave Madrid. There is no need to buy a striker.

“The summer window is not my worry at the moment.

“On our front, we have a big squad and don’t need to buy. Generally, it has been very quiet.

“It shows there are not many players available who can strengthen the Premier League teams.”
