Arsene Wenger makes statement on potential deal for Karim Benzema or Edinson Cavani


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says there is no truth in rumours linking strikers Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani with a possible move to Arsenal.

The transfer window will be slammed shut at the start of September and so far the Gunners have only added goalkeeper Petr Cech to their squad.

Fans have demanded that their club sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema or Paris Saint-Germain man Edinson Cavani but the 65-year-old has revealed that the Gunners are not close to making a new signing.

"I expect [a new signing] like you [the media] but at the moment we are not close," Wenger said on Friday morning.

"My job is to make decisions, to select and make decisions. Even if I look everywhere and listen to everybody at the end of the day I have to make the decisions.

"If I just listen to people's opinion, many players who have signed here starting with Vieira, Anelka and Henry would never have signed here at the end of the day. I have to make the decisions.

"I'm always more focused on developing the team, the players we have and getting everyone on board that we have at the club.

"We want to develop players as well rather than over-thinking whether to buy. I'm not against buying when it is a plus for your team.

"If it's just to buy a player at the level of the players that you have to make people happy, I'm not ready for that. If it's somebody who brings something that you don't already have in the squad, then of course you want to do that.

"What is our target every day, every morning from morning to night, we try to be as good as we can in every single department of our club."
