Beckham trains with Arsenal
London – Former England soccer captain David Beckham is training with Arsenal in a bid to maintain his fitness, manager Arsene Wenger has said.
The 37-year-old midfielder is a free agent after leaving LA Galaxy at the end of the Major League Soccer season in December.
“He has asked to come here and to work on his fitness. He has not done anything for a long time,” Wenger told reporters today.
“He called me. It is purely for fitness. There is no speculation about him signing.”
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid player was linked by British media with moves to French club Paris St Germain or Premier League sides Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United earlier in the season.
Beckham trained with Arsenal for a short period in 2008 and with north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur two years ago.
