Arsenal could land marquee summer transfer for club record fee

Arsenal have been given fresh hope in their pursuit of Karim Benzema, with reports from the Daily Mail claiming that Real Madrid will consider offers of £45m+ for the striker.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with the France international of late amid concerns that Arsene Wenger is light on attacking options heading into the new campaign.

Olivier Giroud is the club’s main centre-forward, but beyond him Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck are the only genuine back-up men.

A move for Benzema was seemingly ruled out earlier this week when Real boss Rafa Benitez scraped talk of his star moving on, however, reports now claim that the Spaniards are open to a deal if at least £45m is put forward by Arsenal.

Such a sum would make the ex-Lyon man the Londoners’ most expensive player, beating the £42.5m fee paid for Mesut Ozil in 2013.
