Karim Benzema has once again been linked with a move to Arsenal despite pledging his future to Real Madrid just last week. The former Lyon forward has been admired by Arsène Wenger and it has now been made clear that if Arsenal offer enough money and ‘fight’ for Benzema, they are in pole position to sign the £50 million rated Frenchmen. It is also believed that Benzema is not the only striker on Arsenal’s radar and that Edinson Cavani is being touted as an easier target. The Uruguayan is set to fly into London for a medical according to the Spanish website Fichajes.net. With Mathieu Flamini not considered good enough and Jack Wilshere perennially injured Wenger feels that Lars Bender is the perfect man to anchor Arsenal’s midfield and is interested in signing him. Arsenal have lost out to Real Madrid in the race to sign Dani Ceballos.
According to the Telegraph
“Despite only last week suggesting he was ready to stay at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium after posting a picture on Instagram with the caption “Come back to Madrid… #work”, Karim Benzema has once again been linked with a move to north London. Benzema, 27, has been linked with a big-money move to the Emirates Stadium throughout the summer transfer window, with some going as far as reporting that the Frenchman had, in fact, signed for the Premier League club. However, the former Lyon striker who has scored 87 goals in 188 La Liga outings with Real Madrid, is now ready to consider the switch, according to a report in the Daily Star. “
