Arsenal’s chance of signing Karim Benzema from Real Madrid have been given a great boost after it was reported that Wenger is second bid for the striker is been considered by Real Madrid.
According to AS per the Metro, says new talks have taken place with the both clubs over a possible move for this week as Arsene Wenger is ready to do business.
Benzema has been a long term target for the Gunners since his days at Lyon, and has been linked to the Gunners all summer with Arsene Wenger in the hunt for a world class striker this summer.
Arsenal were reported to have had an initial £30.3million bid rejected by Madrid followed by a second offer prepared by the Gunners believed to be around £40.5million.
But fresh report, claim Arsenal have tabled a £40.5million for the proven No.9.
