Arsenal to hijack Chelsea’s target with 22m Bid!

Since Real Madrid have gone on a spending spree there are certain players who appear to be unhappy at the club. Initial reports were regarding Khedira being unsettled and Di Maria looking for an exit after being under shadow of Bale and Ronaldo but this time the French striker Benzema is likely to leave the Los Blancos and reports have claimed that a Premier League club has lodged a bid of 22m most likely to be Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger was linked with a move for Benzema again in November, with a Spanish journalist claiming the Frenchman was ‘obsessed’ with his compatriot. With Arsenal challenging for the title and only two senior strikers on the books at the Emirates Stadium, adding another player in the position makes sense this month, and the bookies believe it could be Benzema make the capital switch.

Chelsea’s pursuit of the player appears to be dead however, having fallen well of the pace in the market. The Blues are also title favorites despite of all their strikers misfiring with Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Eto’o not among the goals consistently. And, whilst various strikers have been linked with a move to Chelsea, it appears that Benzema isn’t the man for ‘the special one’.
