Here is Sunday’s news and gossip concerning Arsenal:
Los Blancos are not interested in selling their forward, but that does not appear to have deterred Arsenal.
The north London side are already in talks about bringing Benzema’s teammate Isco to the Emirates, according to the Metro.
Arsene Wenger is prepared to offer £22m for the midfielder.
Edinson Cavani is desperate to seal a move to the north London side after they failed to agree a summer switch, the Metro report.
Arsenal were priced out of a move during the previous window, but may now have more luck during the winter.
The Gunners are also considering a potential January move for Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi, the Metro suggest.
The striker only signed a new contract in June, which may make a move very expensive.
Finally, West Ham’s co-chairman David Gold has revealed that Arsenal were interested in a move for Reece Oxford, before the 16-year-old penned a new deal with the Hammers, the Daily Star report.
