Arsenal are reportedly lining up an exciting move to strengthen their options up front this summer, with a £17.8m bid for Real Madrid star Karim Benzema.
According to the Metro, the Gunners could land the world class Frenchman on the cheap this year, with some doubts over his future at the Bernabeu.
The 27-year-old scored 22 goals last season, but has occasionally proven an unpopular figure with Real’s fans, due to perceptions that he is lazy.
Still, Benzema would no doubt be welcome at the Emirates Stadium, with Arsene Wenger’s side badly in need of an upgrade on players like Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck in attack.
