A top Spanish journalist has confirmed that Arsenal have 100% interest in signing Karim Benzema from Real Madrid for £41.9 million.

Arsenal has been heavily linked with Karim Benzema this summer, with a large part of the news concerning Arsenal centering on the French forward.

Reports of a £41.9 million bid being prepared by Arsenal has been confirmed by Spanish David Alonso on Cadena SER radio. ‘In Benzema’s case, the interest is 100% real,’ said Alonso.

‘We can confirm that Arsenal are looking for a number 9, that they have a lot of money to buy him and that their priority is Karim Benzema.

‘Wenger is ready to invest €60m (£41.9m) to buy a star.’

Benitez moved to quell the speculation during the Audi Cup in Munich when he said “Benzema will stay with us,” he told reporters ahead of the Audi Cup tournament.

“I can’t see any reason why he would leave. We are very happy with him.”

But the manager’s actions at that tournament further fuelled speculations when he played Bale in a central position in a 4-4-2 formation.

With Cristiano Ronaldo expected to complete the striking pair this season, Benzema would fancy his chances of a starting shirt elsewhere.
