Wenger Bale's On Gareth
Arsene Wenger has ruled out a big money bid for The Saints highly rated left back
Arsenal have been widely tipped to sign the excellent Welsh wonderkid, more so after hearing of his friendship with Theo Walcott and his apparent fondness of Arsenal as a club.
However, the Arsenal gaffer maintains, and always will, an unwaivering belief in his young gooners, and says Clichy & Troare are more than enough for him.
'I think Bale is a potentially great player but I am not in the race because I have two left backs,' said the Arsenal manager. 'But the club who gets him will have a good deal - an expensive one but a good player.'
'I have looked at Bale a lot. We have been looking at him because if he comes up for a normal price it's OK but we have already spent a lot for Theo Walcott. [If we bought Bale too] we would be the biggest sponsors of Southampton.'
