We signed Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid four years, but it seems Wenger still interested in getting a player from Real Madrid and this time he looks on the side of country man, Karim Benzema, as indicated by reports.
The French striker has been connected with a move to the Emirates in the last three summers yet Wenger has been unsuccessful in his endeavors to sign the striker. With the French manager now truly looking for a striker, he is allegedly watching Benzema once more.
As indicated by El Confidential by means of the Daily Star, Wenger would have the capacity to sign Benzema this summer in his quest to get a Strike partner for Olivier Giroud.
The Spanish giants have been connected with a move for Aubameyang and Lewandowski and if they be fruitful in signing any of the players, Wenger would be in a favoured position to move for Benzema.
Benzema has been an indispensable piece of Madrid squad in the last couple of seasons however the Spanish side would be interested in offering him if they sign a striker, ideally Lewandowski. Benzema did not feature most of the time for his team last season due to injury, consequently, leaving Real Madrid ‘strikerless’ for the most part of last season.
Benzema is a world class striker which would enhance the Gunners team, when he is fit, he probably would be the first choice of any team, any day and time. He has scored 111 goals in 215 appearances for Madrid since moving to the Spanish capital in 2009. In any case, the French striker is not without his negatives as he has been involved in a few misses that ordinarily he should put in the back of the net as well as been involved in a few off-field occurrences as of late which cost him his place in the France National team.
Wenger needs to reinforce his strike force this summer, with Alexandre Lacazette and Benzema still in the picture; I think we are on the right track to pose a threat for our opponents in the coming season.
