Arsenal legend has leapt to the defence of Arsene Wenger

Published Add your comment

Thierry Henry has leapt to the defence of Arsene Wenger after the Gunners failed to bring any strikers in to the club. Arsenal made just one signing throughout the window as Petr Cech moved from Chelsea and they were linked with moves for Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani but nothing materialised. However Henry has said it was not a case of Wenger not wanting to sign players, more the fact he could not prize them away from their current clubs. In other news, the Mirror are reporting that Wenger in fact turned down the chance to sign PSG forward Cavani. Arsenal were offered the chance to sign the Uruguayan, but apparently did not want to pay the £50 million quoted for a 28-year-old. Reportedly the Gunners were aware that Cavani, who turns 29 later this season, would have no sell-on value. And finally, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed Thierry Henry put him in a headlock and gave him some valuable advice before a game against Man United in 2012.
