The Gunners are prepared to pay £40m for 25-year-old France striker Benzema after missing out on Gonzalo Higuain and Liverpool’s Luis Suarez!

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is keen to further boost his attacking options with Argentina international Di Maria, also 25, who plays on the left wing.


It is also understood that Wenger is also chasing a goalkeeper and a defensive player.

Wenger is a long-term admirer of Benzema, who joined Real from Lyon for £25m in 2009, while Di Maria arrived at the Bernabeu from Benfica a year later.

Arsenal’s only summer signing to date is the 20-year-old French striker Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer from Auxerre.

However,  it is thought that they could spend close to £100m by the close of the transfer window at 23:00 on the 2nd of September.

Speaking after his side’s 3-0 victory at Fenerbahce in their Champions League qualifying play-off first leg, Wenger admitted the pursuit of Suarez was over.

Absolutely no chance of that,” said Wenger of Suarez arriving at Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal saw two bids rejected for the Uruguay forward as Liverpool insisted he was not for sale!

The Gunners have also had a £10m offer for Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye turned down, but Wenger suggested the final 12 days of the transfer window would be a busy one!
Arsenal lost at home to Aston Villa on the opening day of the Premier League season and have suffered injuries to Mikel Arteta, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Laurent Koscielny, while Abou Diaby remains sidelined and fellow-midfielder Jack Wilshere is still returning to full match fitness.

“Quality wise we do not need, but numbers wise we are short,” Wenger continued.

“We lost Arteta and Diaby. We are without three international midfielders. We will try and bring one in but we are working on that. What you have to understand is that there is still a long way to go.

“The transfer market really starts now, a lot of activity will happen between now and 2 September. We have 12 days. A lot will happen. It starts now.”

Arsenal fans, don’t give up on your team yet, Wenger’s got you!
