According to latest reports, Arsenal are desperate to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema for a reported sum of £35.5million. The player have become one of the Europe’s elite strikers since his move to Real Madrid to Lyon back in 2009.
Real Madrid are also considering to sell their target man as they are trying to fill out their budget for their summer transfers with their Galacticos policy. Arsenal are looking to add a quality striker up front as they have onlly Oliver Giroud as an option. Lukas Podolski have gone to Inter Milan on loan in January but failed to make any impact for Italian outfit as well.
Benzema have scored an impressive 22 goals for Real Madrid this season but he is expected to move away from Real Madrid as the Spanish giants are trying to find a new striker this summer. Real Madrid are reportedly interested to bring back Morata whom they sold to Juventus last summer.
With the arrival of a new striker, Benzema would get lesser game time and a move away to Arsenal would be a good option for the French International. The 27-year old have drawn interest from Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool but Arsenal are tipped to be favorites to sign the talented striker this summer.
