It's being reported today that Real Madrid have accepted a bid from Arsenal for Karim Benzema, thought to be in the region of £50m. 

The 27 year old Frenchman has been linked with a move to the Gunners for what seems like an eternity, but if rumours are to be believed, a move is now imminent. With 133 goals for Real Madrid in 188 games, Arsenal would undoubtedly become serious title contenders with a player of Benzema's calibre up front. 

There are some fans who believe Man Utd should in fact be leading the race to sign Benzema, with Rooney in poor form and a lack of decent replacements, LVG clearly needs options up front if they're to be considered title contenders. 

The Benzema to Arsenal rumours seem to have started from some time Sky Sports' pundit Rodney Marsh, who tweeted that the Spanish club have accepted a bid from Arsenal, stopping just short of naming the player. 

What do you think, Arsenal fans? Is it a done deal? Is he the player you wanted this summer? Let us know in the comments.
