Arsene Wenger’s pursuit of Karim Benzema looks like it will end in disappointment, after Spanish expert Guillem Balague stated that the Frenchman will remain a Real Madrid player this summer.
For those asking: no chance whatsoever of Benzema leaving Real Madrid this summer (so no way he will go to Arsenal)

With the boss also adamant that he’ll only bring in world-class players (via Sky Sports), there is a shortage of quality strikers who could improve our squad.
Arsenal transfer news
Here are five options for the manager to consider:
5) Fernando Llorente
- Mesut Ozil to ‘terminate contract’ with Arsenal and join boyhood club
- [Player ratings] Arsenal 0-0 Crystal Palace: Flying save earns Gunners a drab point
- [Team news] Arsenal line up vs Crystal Palace – ‘Special’ star returns
Llorente also isn’t one of the elite strikers in Europe, so should he join us, one would have to wonder if Danny Welbeck’s injury (via Arsenal.com) is worse than first feared?
