Arsenal preparing a bid for Karim Benzema according to Spanish sources

Arsenal are preparing to make a move for Real Madrid hit man Karim Benzema according to Italian website Tuttomercatoweb.

Tuttomercatoweb are citing Spanish sources for the speculation, apparently Arsene Wenger has Benzema at the top of his wish list and will make a bid providing Real Madrid will sell.

Arsenal have been linked with Benzema many times in the past and not just by the Foreign press, almost every English tabloid and most gossip sites (including FootyLatest) have reported on Arsenal’s interest in the French International and therefore it is no real surprise that the rumours linking Benzema with a move to The Emirates persist.

No fee has been mentioned in the article but Benzema would not be cheap and that does bring in to question the reliability of the sources, simply because Arsenal do not pay huge amounts for players and Real Madrid would not let Benzema go for less than £30 Million.

It should also be noted that Benzema has become more of a regular at The Bernabeau and so it would be a strange move for Real Madrid to let him go now, but it must be said that anything is possible with the Spanish giants.

    Straight swp for chamakh?

    A mere counter to any move for RVP

    Generally speaking any worth while striker doesn`t leave his club in mid season, so I can`t see Wenger making a signing up front before the summer. If, as we hear, van Persie waits to see if Wenger does buy a top drawer striker he`d better have it well and truly tied up before the end of the season (pre-contract) and none of this eleventh hour stuff or he could lose his ace.

    When it comes to full backs I think the panic button is flashing and `yes` I do expect movement there in January. Where from? No idea.

  • no way if u said haguin maybe

  • bob

    he Benzima is a good player but if not working i think we can turn to chelsea Torres, i think he will be more useful in arsenal than in chelsea cos arsenal can feed him with balls to score
