(Video) Arsene Wenger rules out Arsenal move for controversial striker Karim Benzema

Posted by

Arsene Wenger delivered a powerful message during his annual Friday press conference today, though it may only serve to split Arsenal fans down the middle.

Having bagged a hat trick during the crucial Champions League clash with Olympiacos during the week, Wenger took time to praise striker Olivier Giroud, but in doing so he distanced himself from a possible move for Karim Benzema.

Gunners fans have been crying out for Wenger to splash the cash in the transfer window, having failed to do so over the summer, but following his exploits midweek, there is a strong case to suggest that there are other areas of the squad in more pressing need of attention.

Plus there’s the whole sex tape business that is threatening to rule him out of next summer’s European Championships.
