Wenger reveals he tracked 'exceptional' Anthony Martial since he was a kid
Manchester United teenage sensation Anthony Martial just joined Yaya Toure, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Leo Messi in Arsene Wenger's "ALMOST" signed for Arsenal list.
Arsene Wenger has revealed that he had been keeping tabs on "exceptional talent" Anthony Martial's situation before his £58m transfer to Manchester United.
Wenger, who had previously been skeptical about Martial's transfer fee and used it to defend Arsenal's inactivity in this transfer window, said today that he is no stranger to the French teenager.
“We have known him since he was a kid,” he said.
“But he’s more of a winger-type.
“He’s an exceptional talent I agree with you but I believe that he plays in positions where we have players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexis Sanchez and Joel Campbell who can play in the position.”
