Karim Benzema eyeing Arsenal opportunity

The France international is apparently not happy with things at Real Madrid and is open to a move to The Emirates.

As things stand, the Gunners manager, Arsene Wenger is desperate to add another striker to the squad in a bid to relieve goal scoring pressure on Olivier Giroud who for the past two seasons has cut a lonesome figure upfront.

Reports claim that the Frenchman is keen on enlisting the services of Benzema who feels that he might be relegated to the bench with the arrival of Rafael Benitez as the club’s new manager. Moreover, with the club looking to shake things up ahead of the new La Liga campaign, it is becoming really clear that the former Olympique Lyonnais striker might face the wrong end of the sword with the former Napoli manager set to change the team’s playing philosophy entirely.

Reports claim that Wenger is set to approach Madrid with a fresh offer for the striker and things might have more clarity about them in the coming weeks.
