Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with interest after Metro claimed that the Gunners are considering signing Karim Benzema.
The Real Madrid forward is on the wish list for Arsene Wenger, who is looking for another forward this summer and as one of our punters notes, after seeing Olivier Giroud dropped for Theo Walcott for the FA Cup we think that Wenger may have finally realised that the Frenchman is not quite as good as he claims.
Ironically, Benzema can play up top with Giroud and has done so with France, and we think that a £40 million bid could well see Real Madrid sit up and take note in a summer where they are looking to change the squad up after a failed season.
Arsenal fans. What do you think about Karim Benzema? Is he the kind of forward that you would like to sign this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
