There has some interesting news today as it has been reported that Arsenal are still tracking Real Madrid star Karim Benzema according to a report by MIRROR. The gunners have been long term admirers of the Frenchman and are expected to make a whooping bid for the player in January because Arsene Wenger wants to strengthen his club because his team is no longer considered to be among the title contenders.
Arsenal has not been that impressive this season as they have only won three of their first eight English Premier League matches and the supporters have started losing hope in their record signing Alexandre Lacazette after the Frenchman wasn’t seen and had no chances at goal in their defeat against Watford on Sunday. Karim Benzema is said to have finally made the decision to leave Spain and it is reported that he considers going to England with Arsenal being the club more interested in him.(PICTURE: GETTY)
It is reported that Karim Benzema may this time accept the offer from the gunners because the Frenchman has won many trophies at the Santiago stadium and is slowly getting benched in Spain, it is well known that Arsene Wenger is a big fan of all players from his home country France meaning that could trigger the deal to go through. Karim Benzema is a typical no.9 striker meaning he can not play other positions be it at the wings or midfield so there will be a lot of questions if he is signed as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.
The gunners already have many strikers in their books so it would be a great choice instead of trying to sign wingers instead of making a move for strikers. You cannot just say that Karim Benzema is better than the gunner’s record signing Alexandre Lacazette and they already have Olivier Giroud as perfect replacement.
