Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal could be set to make a sensational swap deal with Real Madrid as they look to avoid releasing Alexis Sanchez to Premier League rival.
As per Spanish publication Don Balon, Arsene Wenger could try and convince the Spanish giants into agreeing a swap deal involving Sanchez and Karim Benzema.
Wenger has for a long while been a huge fan of the Frenchman and could use Sanchez to try and finally get him down to the Emirates.
Benzema’s future has been hanging in doubt since Real Madrid began targeting Kylian Mbappe.
If the 18-year-old does complete a move to Madrid from Monaco, then it could be his compatriot that makes way for him in the team.
Arsenal have already acquired the signature of Alexandre Lacazette this summer so that could make a deal less probable.
However, if he is put on the market for sale then Arsene Wenger is likely to be at the front of the queue.
Samchez has entered the final year of his deal and even if Arsenal do no sell him this summer, he could move to a Premier League rival for free in a year’s time if he does not extend.
