Arsene Wenger has insisted that he isn't desperate for a new striker this summer.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for Real Madrid's Karim Benzema, but Wenger claims that he is happy with his "well-balanced" squad after their 6-0 pre-season win over Lyon.

He told Sky Sports News: "We are open-minded but we are not desperate. Today we didn't have Welbeck or Sanchez, who are big players. Wilshere didn't play as well, so we will have a good squad when everyone is back. We are open-minded but many clubs are on the market with big, big money.

"At the moment our squad is well-balanced quality-wise and numbers-wise. When you win the FA Cup final scoring four goals and score six today, it shows scoring goals is not our problem."
