Arsene Wenger admits that he is unsure if he would have swooped for David Beckham following his training stint with Arsenal – because a move was never discussed.

Beckham, 37, trained with the Gunners at their London Colney base back in January before sealing a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The former England captain’s arrival at Arsenal inevitably sparked rumours that Wenger was considering signing the midfielder.

But the Frenchman insists that a move was never on the cards. “I don’t know if I would have signed him for Arsenal because it was never discussed,” Wenger wrote in his Eurosport column.

“We already have enough midfielders at the club anyway and David has always said that he does not want to play for another Premier League after Manchester United.

“He trained with us at Arsenal, but it was just a cordial agreement – it wasn’t even the first time he had come to train with us.”
