Arsenal are reportedly on the lookout for top quality players ahead of next season.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push next season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best in the summer to achieve his target.
Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in the summer, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
One key area the manager is looking to strengthen in the summer is the attack, and one of such stars linked with a move in the summer is Aston Villa star Christian Benteke.
Wenger, in a recent interview ahead of the FA Cup showpiece this weekend, showered heavy praise on the 24-year-old Belgian. Confirming his interest in the £40million rated forward.
“He’s a player who has massive potential,” admitted Wenger.
“I think some of the bad fortune at Aston Villa this season was linked with the fact that Benteke was not there.”
“When he came back into the team he gave a lift to everybody and of course he has a fantastic leap, he’s intelligent and he can score goals with his feet.”
“He’s fantastic in the air and can score headers against any team.”
