According to report from Spain, Arsenal have tabled an official offer for Karim Benzema worth round £35m over a possible move this summer.

The Frenchman has been constantly linked with a move to the Emirates with speculation circulating during virtually every transfer window over the past decade.

The rumour mill is already in full swing ahead of the summer and Don Balon claim Arsenal have now put an offer worth £35m on the table for Benzema’s signature after Madrid decided to cash-in.

The Spanish outlet says Florentino Perez is finally ready to sell the French international but Borussia Dortmund have submitted the best offer so far at around £53m – which is significantly more than Arsenal’s reported bid.

Don Balon claim the striker has no interest in going to Germany and either wants to join Arsenal or remain at the Bernabeu but Real Madrid are willing to sell to the highest bidder.
