Gunners to change their transfer policy with mammoth deal.
Arsene Wenger is ready to go all out in his quest to bring Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema to Arsenal this summer, with a new bid of £40.5m expected, according to sources in Spain.
The French international is one of the best players in the world in his position, and will not be sold without a fight this summer as Real hope to hold on to him.
Still, Benzema may be available if Arsenal offer something close to what could potentially be a club-record deal with them, according to latest reports in the Metro.
