Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push next season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best in the summer to achieve his target.
This reports is according to the Metro, Arsene Wenger long time target Karim Benzema is expected to join Arsenal this summer, as real Madrid are now pushing for the deal to move through.
Arsenal have been negotiating for the transfer of the Spanish International for a while now, Arsenal initial bid of £30.5million was rejected by the Spanish giant, Arsenal have now tabled a fresh bid of £40.5 million to push the move through and reports suggest the offer has tempted Madrid in selling the clinical finisher.
Although previous reports suggest Arsenal’s hopes of signing Benzema from Real Madrid has been dismissed by the boss, as Wenger has moved to disregard every speculation that the striker is on his way to the Emirates after last weekend’s Community Shield press conference.
But now that seems to be in the past as Daily Telegraph reports that Real Madrid are expecting the Frenchman to make the move to the Emirates before the close of the transfer window.
