Arsenal have been handed a major transfer boost to land vital summer target.
The Gunners can now swoop in for long time target Karim Benzema.
According to popular Spanish media outlet AS, Arsenal have been cleared to complete the transfer of Real Madrid star striker Benzema.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for Benzema in recent weeks, and the report says the Gunners can now swoop in for their target, with news that Madrid new boss Rafa Benitez is reportedly keen on Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.
However, according to reports, 27-year-old is said to be uncertain in Real Madrid with Cristiano Ronaldo set to play in the central position next season.
Benzema currently earns £150,000-a-week and would reportedly cost the Gunners above £25 million to acquire his services.
The striker scored 22 goals in 45 appearances for Madrid last season and is also a target for Manchester United.
