Arsenal have reportedly made a £35million bid to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
The French ace is believed to be unsettled with life at Madrid and has been a long-term target for Arsene Wenger. And now reports say Arsenal are making an ambitious summer move for his services, with a £35million bid lined up.
Benzema has scored 22 goals in 46 appearences this term but has never won over many Madrid fans.
Arsenal are in need of a proven goalscorer with Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott and Yaya Sanogo both failing to provide a regular goal threat. Benzema would want wages of about £220,000-a-week to join.
