Will Benzema To Arsenal Mean Suarez Leaves Liverpool?
Arsenal fans seem resigned to the fact the Olivier Giroud is looking increasingly likely to exit the Emirates this summer - but there could be good news on the way, in the form of a ready-made replacement.
The French Y-front sporter is apparently heading back across the Channel - destination: Paris - and it seems that Arsene Wenger has already been working hard in the transfer market, in order to bring more cutting edge to North London.
The man he has earmarked to replace his current number 12? Real Madrid's Karim Benzema. The Bernabeu hitman has been in solid form this campaign, and Wenger is well-known to be a big fan of the Gallic goalgrabber, who would cost around £40 million to prize from the Spanish giants.
It's a lot of money, sure - but Benzema has proved that he is a world class striker, and that could be just the attacking impetus that the Gunners need to mount a real title challenge next season.
But that's not the only way that they might benefit from his signing. With Real Madrid's pockets lined, the Spanish club could well use that money to snatch Luis Suarez from Arsenal's rivals Liverpool, meaning that wily old Arsene would kill two birds with one, very expensive stone.
