Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are pretty excited at the prospect of the Daily Star’s latest claims that the Gunners are keen to secure the signing of Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.
Recent reports suggest Benzema’s future could remain with anyone with no strong links with any specific clubs, and with Real’s new manager Rafael Benitez planning to use Cristiano Ronaldo as the club’s main striker next season, it is likely Benzema will be heading towards the exit door.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will be looking to bring the France international to the Emirates Stadium after reports suggest the manager is a known admirer of the player.
A plethora of Gooners sat over by the jukebox here in the Transfer Tavern feel that adding Benzema to Wenger’s squad would do a world of good for the club, and admit that Benzema is the element of world-class pedigree that is needed.
A fee in the region of £17.8m has surfaced to be the bid price the Gunners are willing to put forward to secure the strikers signature and bring him to the Premier League.
