Ex-Gunner Emmanuel Petit is not expecting Arsene Wenger to sign any of the highly-rated goalscorers he is rumoured to be pursuing.

The Gunners boss has once again been linked with a move for a new striker, largely due to the uncertainty surrounding the future of Alexis Sanchez.

Real Madrid star Karim Benzema and AS Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe are believed to be some of Wenger’s main targets in the transfer market.

However, Petit has called for fans to not get too excited because neither of those marquee signings are likely to happen.

“If I am Benzema, I don’t leave Real Madrid for Arsenal. Never. If Madrid want me to stay, I don’t leave.” he said

“Mbappe will never come to Arsenal as he will cost at least 100 million euros and you have to break the salary cap and I don’t see Arsenal doing that!

“Real Madrid and Barcelona are also interested so it’s impossible he goes to Arsenal.”
