Arsenal are said to be weighing up an astonishing £68million swoop for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema in a bid to rejuvenate their attack over the summer, according to the Metro.
The Gunners are looking to swell their options up front next term, and reports in the Daily Star are claiming that they will look towards the prolific duo in the coming weeks.
France international Benzema is being tipped to leave the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season, and the Spaniards are hoping to earn around £38million for his signature.
Villa are also said to be willing to allow Benteke to leave over the summer, but only if a club are able to meet their £30million asking price as he still has two years remaining on his current deal.
Whether the Gunners opt to press ahead with moves for both players remains to be seen, but they could enter talks with the two at the very least.
