Arsenal have been given a massive boost ahead of the winter transfer window after fresh reports claim Spanish giants Real Madrid are now willing to do business with the Gunners regarding the sale of summer target Karim Benzema.
According to the Metro, the Gunners are on red alert to complete the transfer of Karim Benzema when the January transfer window opens, with the Los Blancos awaiting bids for the striker.
Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for the French International all summer – even until transfer deadline day, but failed to convince Real to part with their striker, despite several huge bids reportedly tabled.
However, the Metro claims that Arsenal could finally get their man, with Madrid said to be ready to listen to offers for the 27-year-old’s services as early as January.
