Arsenal are keen on signing Karim Benzema from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish outlet Don Balon, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that the Gunners are looking into a possible transfer swoop to sign the France international in the summer.
The Gunners have long been linked with a move for Benzema, although it remains to be seen how truthful the reports are, considering that the Gunners have recently signed both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to bolster their strikeforce.
According to the same story, Real Madrid are keen to offload the French striker in the summer transfer window.
The same report claims that Arsene Wenger is big admirer of the French striker, and that the north London club are now working on putting a bid together.
The article also suggests that Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is Real Madrid’s top transfer target for the summer window as the Spanish side look to bolster their attacking options.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are currently preparing for the return leg of their Europa League last 32 tie against Ostersunds at The Emirates on Thursday night.
The Gunners won the first leg 3-0 in Sweden last week.
