Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Ian Wright is convinced they’re trying to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
Benzema has branded pundits claiming the deal is on as “CLOWNS”.
But Wrighty told BT Sport: “They needed to do this five years ago if they were going to take him out of the right-hand side and into the centre and try to teach him how to make those runs.
“Now all of a sudden that Giroud isn’t playing well, they’re trying to get Benzema.
“He scored a hat-trick against let’s face it West Brom at the end of last season and a very poor Aston Villa side in the FA Cup final and now they’re putting him up front and basically telling him to get on with it.”
