The La Liga giants have been reluctant to let Benzema leave this summer, but are now preparing for life without the former Lyon man by targeting Aguero and Juventus duo Fernando Llorente and Alvaro Morata.

The Gunners have been looking to sign a quality striker for quite some time, and have reportedly prepared £46million to bring Benzema to the Emirates this summer.

But they will need to fend off competition from Man United, who are also looking for a centre-forward following the departures of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie.

City, however, will do all they can to keep Aguero at the Etihad, with the Argentine the club’s top scorer with 32 goals in all competitions last season.
