Arsenal to make move for Real Madrid star

According to Squeakybumtime sources, Arsene Wenger is eying a move for fellow compatriot Karim Benzema.

[sociallocker]The Gunners are looking to strengthen their squad, especially up front and the Real Madrid striker fits the bill and would certainly add quality to the Arsenal side.

The Frenchman’s future has been put into doubt following Carlo Ancelotti’s sacking and Real could offload the striker for a fee in the region of £40m.

Wenger is desperate to build on recent cup success and is looking to mount a serious charge on the Premier League next season, and a striker is top of his shopping list.

The Gunners may face stiff competition from Manchester United, who are resigned to losing out on Gareth Bale with the Welsh star staying at the Santiago Bernabeu for another season.[/sociallocker]
