As Wenger continue to search for a world class striker, French international striker Karim Benzema has been hotly tipped with a move Arsenal, just last like season where the Gunners looked the closest to getting him.
Benzema made a U-turn and signed a contract extension with Spanish champions and Champions League winners Real Madrid, scoring 28 goals in 36 games last season.
With Alvaro Morata heading back to Real Madrid to challenge Benzema for the striking role, and reports suggest Real Madrid are ready to some of their stars.
French journalist Sylvain Jamet told Daily Cannon the club has put to bed any chance of Benzema exiting the Bernabeau this summer, no matter what price gets offered.
“There’s no chance of Benzema leaving.
The French striker reportedly has a really close relationship with Zinedine Zidane, so unless Zidane gets sacked, Benzema will be going nowhere.”
Former Madrid man Zidane who took over from Rafa Benitez will now stay on as manager following their impressive end to the campaign which saw their City rivals Athletico beaten in the Champions League final.
Arsenal on the other hand should prepare themselves in lowering standards by making an offer for top-level talent capable of taking on French striker Olivier Giroud for the number 1 spot.
