Arsenal: Here's The 30m French Star That Can Solve Your Striker Woes
Arsenal have been looking around Europe for a new striker, and they believe Karim Benzema is the perfect target. The Gunners asked about him last summer when they signed Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid, now they've clearly got a taste for splashing cash and are set to return with an offer of £30 million, according to the Telegraph.
Olivier Giroud is a good striker, but he's struggled in the big games and has been run into the ground because Arsenal didn't have a proper alternative. Benzema would be an upgrade on his French teammate, and improve the squad depth as well.
Benzema has been in superb form for Madrid this season, getting 22 goals and 13 assists in 44 appearances. Despite that, the French star only has a year left on his deal at the Bernabeu and may be allowed to leave while he can still command a big fee. The deal would also depend on Real signing a replacement - Luis Suarez, maybe?
Should Wenger go all out for Benzema?
