Recently John Cross of daily mirror confirmed via his twitter account that Arsenal are not going to be spending more than 30 million on a striker this summer. Immediately the well placed journalist confirmed this news, Arsenal fans starting wonder if Arsenal will ever succeed in their bid to bring in a world class striker to the Emirates this summer.
Many believe considering the amount of money players have been sold for this summer, Arsenal stands no chance of getting a world class striker for £30 million. But if you believe report the Spaniard press today, then Arsenal are on the verge of signing a truly world class striker for a little less than £30 million. According to various Spanish papers, Arsenal and Real Madrid have reached an agreement for the transfer of Karim Benzema.
Yes, Karim Benzema. The former Lyon star was linked with a move to Arsenal last summer but Real Madrid’s inability to complete their own deals meant Benzema had to stay and Arsenal ended up signing only Petr Cech. But with Morata now back at Madrid, Los Blancos are been forced to get rid of one of them and they have decided to get rid of Benzema.
The reports claim the player will be signing for Arsenal in a €30 million deal which is a little than that £30 million. He will reportedly be given a wage package of 180,000 a week which will make him Arsenal’s highest paid player until at least Mesut Ozil and Sanchez sign new deals.
