Arsene Wenger has called for the sensational return of striker Karim Benzema to France's squad for Euro 2020, saying his exile is due to a 'non-sport problem'.

The forward has not played for France since 2015 because of his alleged involvement in a plot to blackmail fellow team-mate Mathieu Valbuena over a compromising video in which he featured.  

In March it was announced that the case will go to trial in October. Benzema claims he is innocent and described the six-year saga as a 'masquerade'.
