Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is waiting to raid Real Madrid once again this summer with his ideal target Karim Benzema potentially becoming available in the coming months, El Confidencial reports.
The report suggests that Benzema is Wenger’s ‘dream’ signing and should the Spanish giants pursue a move for Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, the Frenchman could be deemed as surplus to requirements.
To add to Wenger’s hopes, newly appointed Real Madrid boss is set to change the system at the Bernabeu and look to position Gareth Bale in behind Cristiano Ronaldo in a 4-2-3-1 system, El Confidencial suggest.
Arsenal transfer news
This potential move is dependent on many variables falling into place; however, Florentino Perez’s history suggests that one superstar will leave this summer.
Angel di Maria, Mesut Ozil and Gonzalo Higuain have all departed over the past few seasons for large sums of money and all the indications are pointing at Benzema to be the next superstar to leave the door.
