Arsenal has put in a bid of 40 million pounds for Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema according to various reports. It is been reported that Wenger believes he has a chance of signing the French man for 40 million and as such has commence negotiation with Florentio Perez.
Wenger is desperate for a new striker addition after seeing his attempt to sign Luiz Suarez and former Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain. According to the reports, Arsenal are also trying to get Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid in a double swoop.
It is been said that Real Madrid are in need of the cash in order to pursuit Luiz Suarez who Liverpool has refused to sell to Arsenal after their very messy and public pursuit of the Uruguayan. Some reports on the social media have it that Arsenal has agreed in principle with Real Madrid not to further pursuit Luiz Suarez if Benzema will be sold to them.
It remains to be seen if Real Madrid will be willing to sell to Arsenal. Both Real Madrid and Arsenal have always had issues when it comes to players transfers. Personally, I am not convinced we have a chance of signing any player from Real Madrid.
We refused to sell Vieria and Henry to them and they turned us down on Sahin and Higuain recently.
