The Daily Mail are reporting that despite an initial inquiry that returned a fruitless one, Arsene Wenger has decided to test the resolve of the Spanish club and has vowed to return with a second offer in the latter stages of the summer.
Wenger has tried to sign his fellow Frenchman every window for the past three years, and after the acquisition of Petr Cech, the Daily Mail are confident that it is Benzema who the North-London club will now set their sights on.
One rather tipsy Arsenal fan over in the corner with his pint made his thoughts on the matter known: “I hope Arsene can finally use his french connection with the player and sign him. We NEED a world-class striker, if we get one – we will win the league mark my words!”.
