Metro have Arsenal fans on the very edge of their bar stools here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the publication claimed that the Gunners were in talks with Karim Benzema.
The Real Madrid forward has been linked with a move away from the La Liga side despite only recently penning a new deal with the club and having the full support of manager Carlo Ancelotti and Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, the French international forward will be sold by the Champions League winners should the right offer come in.
As one of our punters notes over a pint, Wenger has been on the lookout for another forward and despite signing Danny Welbeck from Manchester United on deadline day, would still be keen to bring in a player he considers to be world class.
Benzema seems to be that man and Arsenal are now in talks with the Frenchman over a potential move this winter. That has certainly gone down a treat with the Arsenal faithful in the tavern this weekend!
Arsenal fans. Would Benzema get you back into that top four spot or is there someone else you would rather sign? Let us know your thoughts below.
