Arsene Wenger is ready to smash Arsenal’s transfer record by pushing on with a move to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema and may act as early as early January to bring the Frenchman to the Emirates. The Gunners manager is desperate to bring in quality new additions to help boost his squad as they look to end a five year long silverware drought.

Jose Mourinho has used Benzema sparingly this term and could well be willing to allow the 22 year old former Lyon man leave for the right price and Bernebeu President Florentino Perez will not want to sell the French International for anything less than £25m, a fee that would smash Arsenal’s record outlay by some distance.

Arsene Wenger has long been an admirer of the powerfully built striker and with the never injury concerns surrounding Robin Van Persie and the reported bust up with Nicklas Bendtner the Arsenal boss may feel the time is right to spend big to land an established front man to help boost the club’s attacking potential.

Benzema may well jump at the chance of a move to the Premier League where he would at least hope to get a regular run in the first team as opposed to only finding his name on the teamsheet when injuries to teammates dictate.
