Gunners want to tempt Real Madrid into parting with superstar forward…

Arsenal desperately want to sign a forward in the summer, and a superstar Frenchman has emerged as the no.1 target…
The Gunners could offer Real Madrid £40m for the services of Karim Benzema, reports CaughtOffside.
Last summer, Arsene Wenger’s side splashed out a similar fee to tempt Mesut Ozil to the Emirates, and will hope to add a second Madrid superstar to their ranks come the end of the season.
The 26-year-old currently spearheads Carlo Ancelotti’s side, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale either side of him in a ferociously powerful and dangerous front three.
He’s bagged 17 in La Liga, and five in the Champions League, where his goal in the semi-final last week made Madrid favourites to progress to the final.
Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud has not had an awful season, although his inability to perform in big matches has caused many Arsenal fans to turn against him. Nicklas Bendtner is leaving, and Yaya Sanogo yet to score a goal for the side, Benzema would add world-class cutting edge to Arsene Wenger’s XI.
Any potential deal though would rely on Madrid bringing in a top notch replacement, meaning Liverpool may have to brace themselves for a mammoth bid for Luis Suarez.
