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.
