Arsenal fans are looking up from their pints with full attention here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the latest claim from the Daily Telegraph.
They seem to think that Arsene Wenger is set to finally pursue some big summer dealings with the French tactician hoping it is third time lucky in his pursuit of Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.
The French international forward has been a target for the Gunners a number of times in the past and it seems that with Real Madrid ramping up their interest in Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, Arsenal may now be able to land Benzema.
In order to raise the money it would cost to land the Liverpool forward Los Blancos are willing to sell Benzema – and they also need to free up some space in their star studded squad.
Over a pint and some burgers, our punters seem to think that Luis Suarez will be arriving at Madrid this summer and finally Wenger may be able to add someone better than Olivier Giroud to his squad – who we think needs five chances to score one goal!
Can Arsenal secure a second high profile raid on Real Madrid in as many seasons, following the arrival of Mesut Ozil last summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
