Arsenal legend not confident about Karim Benzema

Ray Parlour believes that he does not see his former club being able to sign the France international from Real Madrid this summer

The Gunners are reportedly very keen on bringing another striker to the Emirates and have been hotly linked with a move for the Real Madrid man who might not be against the idea of playing in the Premier League. However, Ray Parlour feels that The Gunners might not be able to sign the former Olympique Lyonnais man.

Ray Parlour says that Madrid president, Florentino Perez might not be interested in dealing with the player because he likes him a lot and sees him as a valuable member of the team.

“He would be a top quality striker – If he’s available from Real Madrid I don’t know, I think the owner likes him at Real Madrid and it’s whether they can entice him away,” he told talkSPORT.
