Wenger says he was aware of the former Monaco striker when he was coming through at Lyon.

“We knew him when he was a child, but he is more a winger than a striker. I agree that he is an exceptional talent, but for his position we already have players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexis Sánchez and Joel Campbell, who can play anywhere up front,” said Wenger.

Martial has scored three goals in his first two Premier League games for United.
