Arsenal back in for Benzema?
According to reports in Spain, Arsenal is back to try and sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, but have been met by a Real Madrid counter offer that is not favorable.
Madrid wants cash plus Bellerin to let their striker go! Dario Gol also adds that Benzema has several big-money offers from China, which Madrid might be tempted to listen to. Some teams are offering up to £80m, while Arsenal is willing to pay only a half of that.
Real is a staggering 14 points off Barcelona in La Liga and a major summer overhaul is expected. Benzema has struggled throughout this campaign and his days at the club look numbered. He’s managed a meager eight goals in all competitions.
Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane has been linked with a move to Spain and with his current form (31 goals in 32 games), if Benzema is to move he will not be missed at the Bernabeu.
