Arsenal To Make Record Shattering £30m Starlet Bid!

Wenger set to spend big!

SOCCER: MAY 30 Ligue 1 - Toulouse FC v Olympique Lyonnais

The Rumour

ARSENAL are ready to hijack the Manchester United move for France striker Karim Benzema.

The Gunners board will be prepared to fund a £30million fee for Lyon’s Benzema, 21, if Arsene Wenger opts to cash in on Emmanuel Adebayor.

AC Milan have been considering making a new move for Adebayor this week. Togo ace Adebayor, 25, has also been linked with a move to Inter Milan and even Chelsea.

The Analysis

This would be an interesting swoop but could it be true? Manchester United have been chasing Lyon hot shot Karim Benzema for about two years now and just when it seems likely he will leave the French side along comes Arsene Wenger with some new found wealth?

Arsenal do appear to be keen to cash in on Emmanuel Adebayor but crucially it appears no one has come in with a stone cold certain bid but that may change soon as it appears AC Milan have failed to lure Edin Dzeko away from Wolfsburg and the Togolese striker is said to be their next target.

Whilst it’s true that Wenger has a good chance of snaring any French player and already has a few of Benzema’s fellow international colleagues at the club, it would still be a surprise if the club did in fact shatter their transfer record for the gifted youngster!

The Likelihood

Benzema to Arsenal: It’s a deal that all Gunners fans will be wishing comes true!
