Emirates Stadium side ready to spend big to beef up Gunners attack.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger appears very keen on strengthening his Gunners attack with a number of sources claiming the Frenchman is ready to spend big in pursuit of support for in-form forward Olivier Giroud.
The Metro claim that the North London club are ready to make a £43m bid for Real Madrid marksman Karim Benzema who is known to be a long term Wenger target and is certainly a player who could be offloaded by Carlo Ancelotti in January.
The 25 year old has suffered a fair amount of abuse from the Bernabeu faithful this term and has had an up and down time of it ever since moving from Lyon to the Spanish giants back in 2009. Thus far this term two goals in eight La Liga fixtures is a return that may well mean Benzema’s future at Real Madrid is even more tenuous and a move to the Emirates Stadium may well tempt the French international.
