Wenger Admits Becks Fancy

Wenger Admits Becks Fancy

Arsene Wenger and David Beckham have continued their virtual love affair even after the Arsenal Real Madrid tie has passed.

Most thought Wenger and Beckham were just exchanging pleasantries in the build up to the Champion's League game, but it seems the flirting has continued long after the final whistle.

Pre-match comments such as 'Beckham is one of the finest passers in the game' and 'Mr Wenger is one of the best in the business' were passed between one another, at one point the England Skippers face beamed with joy upon hearing Arsene's praise, but now, for the first time, Wenger has admitted possibly thinking about going in for the midfielder.

'Of course I would take him,' Wenger said. 'I don't know what his intentions are. Ask me if I rate him and I say yes. Ask if he can play at Arsenal and I say yes, he has the qualities to do it.'

'Have I been in for him? No. I don't think about it now, I will address it at the end of the season.'

'I can give you 20 names of players who could become involved in Arsenal Football Club - exceptional players who would add something, and if we need it we'll do it. He could be one of them.'

I don't know how I would feel about bringing Becks to the club, he certainly is the set piece king, and can pass a ball as good as anyone in the game, but do we really need another ageing player in our ranks?

Comercially, it would be great. Football wise, I'm not so sure. Too old, too slow and too motivated by money.

I'm not too sure about it all myself, one thing is for certain tho, David Beckham is much better than people give him credit for. I guess he has made a rod for his own back by being a media whore, but he's still a cracking player.

The more that you read about this rumour and comments made by AW, it seems this might actually happen but then we will have the debate on the over 30 policy.

It would only be worth it if we got him for cheap and he signed on a year-by-year basis. I'd be horrified if we abandoned our policy and offered him a 3 year £80k per week deal! And as Henry can't head a ball very well, would his crosses be that useful?
