Arsenal are arming themselves for a sensational summer scoop for Real Madrid's Karim Benzema, according to El Confidencial.

Arsène Wenger will apparently be keeping one eye on the situation at Madrid all summer long. If they decide to sign a big striker like Sergio Aguero from Manchester City, you can bet your bottom dollar that Wenger will make a move for Benzema.

The French striker scored 22 goals and assisted 15 in all competitions last season. It's that ability to not only pop up and score, but also combine with surrounding players that makes him such an attractive target for Wenger. Benzema would suit Arsenal's style and system perfectly and because of that they're willing, if the opputunity arises, to spend big on him.

Wenger has spent summer upon summer monitoring Benzema's situation and very nearly signed him before he joined Real Madrid. The deal could be reminiscent of the one that saw Mesut Özil join Arsenal from Madrid on deadline day in 2013.

We think it's worth keeping your own close eye on this one...
