Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he is not interested in signing Karim Benzema or any other striker.

It was reported in Spain by Diario Gol that Real Madrid had offered Benzema to Arsenal and Chelsea in the current transfer window.

Arsenal have been linked with the France international striker for several years but Wenger says he will not be making an offer for the forward before Tuesday's deadline.

"He is linked with us because he is French and maybe there is a bit of noise that he could leave Madrid," said Wenger.

"But there is no need for us to buy any strikers. On our front, we have a big squad and don't need to buy.
