Arsenal handed surprise boost in race to sign Manchester United striker target

Gunners can beat Red Devils to world class striker’s signature – find out why.

Arsenal have been handed a surprise boost in their pursuit of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, with club president Florentino Perez seemingly ready to sell for the right price.

The French international was strongly linked as a top target for the Gunners during the summer transfer window, though a move never materialised as the player seemed content to remain at the Bernabeu.

However, Arsenal are still thought to be tracking the 27-year-old ahead of January, particularly with Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott struggling, while Danny Welbeck is out injured.
