Arsenal ponder €45m Benzema bid

According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, Arsenal are considering a €45m bid for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.

The Londoners are becoming increasingly frustrated in their attempts to sign Luis Suarez from Liverpool and are consequently weighing up their chances of landing French international Benzema.

After missing out on Gonzalo Higuain over the summer, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is still chasing a big-name striker before the start of the season and Benzema, who scored 20 goals in 50 games in all competitions for Madrid last term, could be the answer.

The 25-year-old was on the mark twice for Carlo Ancelotti’s side after coming on as a substitute in the 3-1 win over LA Galaxy in the International Champions Cup game last week.
