Arsenal prepare £30m bid for Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema [Telegraph]

Arsenal have been linked to French Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema on numerous occasions in the past.

26 year old Benzema is the main striker at Real Madrid but reports of a summer move for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez are building a head of steam.

The Frenchman has only one year left on his contract and Arsene Wenger is looking to strengthen his attacking options, with International teammate Olivier Giroud his only real option up front.

The Telegraph claim Arsenal are preparing a £30m bid for Benzema, but are also looking at Bayern’s striker Mario Mandzukic.
