Real Madrid star Karim Benzema is ready to accept a move to Arsenal with the club set to lodge a £50million bid.
Benzema has been linked with a transfer to the Gunners for all of the summer so far, but he had insisted last month that he planned to stay at Real Madrid this summer.
However, the Metro website says Arsenal are making an improved £50m offer, with Benzema ready to accept the move.
A Madrid insider told the Star a switch to Arsenal is likely.
‘It’s up to Arsenal to fight for Karim with a big offer,’ he said.
‘Then he could be their player in this window.’
