Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
The Gunners have been constantly linked with Benzema over the years, inshort there is no transfer window that the French man hasn’t been linked with a move to the Emirates and I am sure Gooners must have been fed up with these links.
Benzema has been a key member of the Spanish club since he joined them in 2009 but can no longer be considered as the top striker that he was once known as, after his subpar performances in the last two seasons.
Since he was embroiled in a sex scandal in 2014, which cost him his place in the France national team, Benzema has never hit those heights that made him feared by opposition defenders.
According to Diario Gol via the Daily Cannon, Madrid are now willing to sell Benzema before the transfer window closes, as Zinedine Zidane tries to trim his squad.
While that doesn’t make sense because Benzema is the only recognised centre forward at Madrid at the Moment, the report took its ridiculousness to the next level by claiming Arsenal would be interested in signing the striker as a replacement for Sanchez.
Wenger was a big admirer of the striker in his early days and I believe that is the only reason we continue to be linked with the striker.
I’m certain that Wenger isn’t interested in Benzema because we have enough options upfront and there is no way he can be considered as a replacement for Sanchez who plays primarily as a winger.
