I think that all Arsenal fans should be crossing our fingers and toes and hoping that Arsene Wenger fails in his reported attempt to bring the Real Madrid and France international star to north London this summer. According to the Arsenal transfer rumour mill, this could all hinge on Rafa Benitez and how his plans for the season affect the French striker and the saga could drag on right up until the end of the transfer window.
But if the news from a respected Spanish journalist, reported by Metro, is correct then I am hoping that Benitez persuades Benzema to say in Madrid and the sooner the better. Because Kike Marin has revealed that the Gunners have a second transfer target in case the Benzema bid fails and it is the Bayern Munich and Poland striker Robert Lewandowski.
I think he would be absolutely perfect for Arsenal as he brings more finesse and link up play than the Frenchman and his finishing is just as good if not better. But would the German champions be willing to sell?
