Alexis Sanchez has been linked with a summer transfer to Real Madrid, and now latest reports from Goal via Daily Star claim that Arsenal wants Real striker Karim Benzema plus cash for the Chilean.
The Chilean has recently declared that he intends to play in the UEFA Champions League with Spanish giant Real Madrid desperate to sign a quality player this transfer window, the Arsenal boss is determined to drive a hard bargain.
Discussions for a new deal for the Chilean has not progressed well, and the Gunners might be set to let go of their attacker if they finally manage to sign Karim Benzema.
Arsenal have already signed Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon, and with the future of Frenchman Olivier Giroud uncertain, the Arsenal manager is eager to sign a quality forward to challenge for the Premier League title this coming season.
With more reports of the Chilean’s dissatisfaction at the Emirates, a swap deal involving Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema moving to Arsenal makes perfect sense for both Real Madrid and Arsenal.
The Gunners have been linked with the Real Madrid forward almost every transfer window, but this time the rumour holds a ring of truth as Real Madrid are also reportedly interested in signing Alexis Sanchez.
