Arsenal have been long in search for a quality striker as it has been said for years that if they don’t sign a prolific 25 goals striker per season they won’t be competing for many silverware especially for the Champions’ League and Premier League. Gonzalo Higuain snubbed Arsenal for Napoli which is proving to be a good decision for him as he has been an integral part of Napoli’s squad but now French star Benzema has found himself in Arsenal’s radar.
REAL MADRID are preparing to offload Karim Benzema to Arsenal in a bid to raise funds to launch a sensational move for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.
Reports in Italy suggest that Real remain optimistic that they can persuade Suarez to swap Merseyside for Madrid despite the Uruguayan signing a new contract at Anfield earlier this season.
Florentino Perez is said to be enamoured with the idea of having Suarez join Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in one of the most fearsome forward lines ever assembled.
Real know that Suarez will not come cheap however, and appreciate that they will need to offer an enormous fee to even tempt Liverpool after Suarez fired them into title contention this season.
And the Spanish giants believe that they have just the way to raise such funds in the form of Karim Benzema.
