Arsenal boss Wenger admits admiration for Norwich powerhouse Holt

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he's a big fan of Norwich City captain Grant Holt.

After being held to a 3-3 draw at the Emirates back in May, Wenger knows Norwich striker Holt will be the main threat to his defence.

"Holt gave us some problems last year, especially at the Emirates. He had a fantastic game. We were second best at the back last year and that is what we have to correct," he said.

"Last year I looked at him, like many clubs. Not to buy him but just to see his numbers because he impressed against us."
