Arsenal given all clear to seal deal for 22-goal hitman

Arsenal have been cleared to sign Karim Benzema with Real Madrid ready to sell this summer, according to the Metro website.

The French striker has scored 22 goals in 45 appearances this season but, Madrid are intent on triggering a £21.6m buy-back clause for Juventus’ Alvaro Morata and will use the sell of Benzema to fund the deal.

It is no secret that Arsene Wenger is keen on a new striker and Benzema has been on his radar for the last few seasons.

And any potential move for Benzema could see the Frenchman link up with his international team-mate Olivier Giroud. © 2017 Frontier Theme
