Arsene Wenger hints at Karim Benzema bid

The Arsenal boss is desperate to sign a star striker this summer and has been reportedly linked with the Real Madrid striker for weeks

The Gunners boss has said many times this summer that he will be looking to sign an exceptional player by the end of the current transfer window. Initially, the French tactician was keen on acquiring the signature of Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain but Napoli’s asking price meant that Wenger had to look elsewhere.

Now, his search has reportedly led him to Real Madrid where he is looking to go big in a bid to bring Karim Benzema to the Emirates. The former Olympique Lyonnais striker is reportedly not happy with the arrival of Rafael Benitez and is desperate to test himself in the Premier League.

This is what Wenger had to say about the rumours:

“If I find an exceptional player to strengthen, I will do it. It depends what’s on the market. It’s not easy, there are a lot of teams out there in Europe competing for the same player.”
