Arsenal’s pursuit of a striker this summer may be given a boost, with Karim Benzema’s future at Real Madrid in doubt.
Arsenal were said to be keen on the French international last summer, but failed in a last-minute bid to prise him from Madrid. And while Benzema has been back to his best this season, it remains to be seen whether Real Madrid will seek to extend his stay and whether the player himself will be keen on staying in Spain.
There can be little to no excuse for slip ups this summer from Arsenal, having no seen how detrimental a weak forward line can be to hopes of landing the Premier League title. And even though a striker looks set to arrive this summer, it is understandable that fans are clamouring for a big name considering the financial resources available to Arsene Wenger and the failed bids for Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain last summer.
