Arsenal Set To Bid £30 million For Real Madrid’s Striker As Move For Suarez Gets Messier


Caught Offside believe that Arsenal are weighing up a possible £30 million move for Karim Benzema. The Gunners are eager to bring in a marquee signing after missing out Gonzalo Higuain and their pursuit of Luis Suarez stalling.

The Gunners have been armed with a huge transfer kitty of £70 million but have been unable to use any of it as they have missed out on their key targets so far.

Benzema is thought to be open to a move away from the Bernabeu with Roma rumoured to have entered negotiations with the French striker. The news has alerted Wenger of his availability with ‘Le Prof’ now readying a bid.

Suarez remains the club’s top priority but are determined not to lose out again and have lined up Benzema, as a possible replacement should their efforts to bring in Suarez fail.

Benzema would be a cheaper and younger option that the Uruguayan as well as less controversial but with Suarez already adapted to the Premier League, Wenger still prefers the South American.

Real Madrid remain Suarez’s favourite destination and should the La Liga club enter the bidding for him, then Arsenal would switch their attention on to Benzema to ensure they don’t miss out altogether.

Erik Lamela, Wayne Rooney and Edin Dzeko are all being lined up as possible targets if both bids fail for Suarez and Benzema.

  1. Is there anyone else we are buying, we have so much money that we could buy an entire new football team, Do me a favour cut out all these rubbish stories cause we are buying noone that is over 12 million euros and that is a fact ,this Suares story going round for the last blasted week , I have’nt heard Suares say he would love to come to Arsenal, all are made up giving the Arsenal supporters false hope, i BLAIM ONE MAN Arsene Wenger because he in all the years at Arsenal has never come out to address the Arsenal Supporters and give them a little respect and tell them what exactly is going on, they always seem to have much to say at the very end of the season and even more when they need all the season tickets sold , once that is done it’s the sound of Silence, no one has anything to say.

  2. Cut the crap out and stop posting such rubbish if u have nothing to post. We are tired of these silly stories.

  3. Really you actually think RM is selling Karim Benzema after selling Higuain? What a waste of time who do RM have as striker if they sell Benzema? Maybe we should have Bid for Benzema First instead of Higuain. And how do you think this bid looks to Benzema? Oh you wanted Higuain then you go for Suarez and now I’m third choice? maybe I will just stay at RM thank you. Really if there is any truth to this bid Arsenal have lost it. they are just throwing bids out now in desperation.
