Wenger makes Beckham offer
Arsene Wenger would gladly welcome David Beckham back to train with Arsenal if his move to AC Milan fails to come off - but will not be making a shock swoop for the Los Angeles Galaxy star.
The former England captain is close to signing a short-term contract with the Italian club.
The move has mainly been done to ensure Beckham remains in the England squad for forthcoming friendlies against Germany and, probably, Spain, which would enable him to break Bobby Moore's record number of caps for an outfield player.
Arsenal enjoyed the company of the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder last season - and the Gunners boss would gladly open up the club's Hertfordshire facilities once again.
Wenger said: "I have not been in touch with him, and certainly not as a player for the club.
"But if he wants to be fit and practise why not?
"However, we have Theo Walcott who plays in this position, Emmanuel Eboue who plays in this position so we are not looking for a right midfielder."
