Arsenal were keen on signing Frenchman Karim Benzema from Real Madrid over the summer but the deal went soar as the 27-year-old took to his twitter to declare his commitment to Spanish giant Real Madrid, Gunners legend Ian Wright told BT Sport the entire saga was humiliating for the club.
‘The Benzema thing was quite embarrassing for [Arsenal],’ Wright, who scored 128 goals for Arsenal, told BT Sport.
‘The way that they pursued it. If you’re trying to get a player like that you find out straight off the bat “are you interested in coming?” If you’re interested, we’ll pursue it.
‘I thought the way they dealt with that was pretty bad in the end and the way he mugged Arsenal off in the end on Twitter, it wasn’t good.’
