Now at 28, Anelka admitted it would be exciting to be involved with Arsene Wenger's current side, who have made an excellent start to the season.

He told The Sun: "If you look now at the situation Arsenal are in and look at where I am, then you could say maybe I should have stayed.

"Of course, I would like to play in that team. Which striker wouldn't want to be part of a team that plays such amazing football?

"But the way they are playing, who's to say I'd even get in that team?"
