Arsenal’s delve in the upcoming transfer window seems to be taking a rather speedy fashion as there are reports that the Gunners are set to land long time target Karim Benzema.

Reports according to Goal, claim the Gunners could let forward Olivier Giroud leave to Ligue 1 champions PSG this summer in order to make way for Benzema.

The report says Benzema is interested in a move to north London, but that will depend on whether the Spanish giants sign a new striker in the summer to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

Arsene Wenger is thought to be keen on landing his long time target and strongly believes a bid in the region of £35 million would force Madrid to sanction the sale of the 27-year-old.

PSG on the other hand are closely monitoring the situation with intent of swooping for Giroud, with Arsenal thought to be willing to do business in other to raise funds to land Benzema.

Is Arsenal right to want to swap Giroud for Benzema? or should the Real Madrid forward be brought to provide competition and support to Giroud in the Arsenal attack?
