Wenger denies approach for Benzema, can’t understand how Man United let Van Persie go [Video]

Arsene Wenger categorically denied making a move for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema at his Singapore press conference today.

Arsenal have been continually linked with a move for the Frenchman, but Wenger can’t understand where that story comes from, and says that they aren’t currently in the market for any striker.

The Arsenal boss also gave his opinion on Robin van Persie’s move to Fenerbahce, a transfer that has left him stunned.

Wenger of course signed Van Persie from Feyenord as a raw 20-year old and developed him into one of the best strikers in the world before selling him to United in the summer of 2013; and the Arsenal boss can’t fathom how United could let him leave so easily, when he still has so much left to offer.
