Arsenal to sign Madrid Star if Sanchez leaves, according to most recent gossip
Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema has been connected with a move to Arsenal should Alexis Sanchez leave.
The Express are the most recent publication to bounce on Benzema gossip tidbits to attempt and get Arsenal fans energized. They’requoting Spanish outlet Diario Gol, who assert that Arsenal would be “genuinely” intrigued by Benzema, yet just if Alexis Sanchez moves to Manchester City.
For what it’s worth, I don’t think these moves have any possibility of happening. Alexis Sanchez to City was an ordinary rumour talk in the transfer window, and most Arsenal fans presumably began to have questions about whether he’d remain at some stage.
But with eight days left, it would just be too hard for Arsenal to replace the Chilean. Karim Benzema surely wouldn’t be a decent replacement. The Gunners have Alexandre Lacazette and Olivier Giroud in the team, with Danny Welbeck as a third option.
The position that Arsenal are having issues at the moment is their choices in wide areas. Mesut Özil has the right-hand side secured, however with Alexis out, Danny Welbeck has had to replace him on the left and hasn’t been very convincing.
On the off chance that the Chilean was away for good, this position would turn out to be considerable to a greater degree an issue, and Karim Benzema, who didn’t show up on the wing out of 48 league matches last season, would not solve the problem.
