Competition: Premier League
Market: Karim Benzema to join Arsenal
Odds: 13/2 @ 888 Sport
Arsenal are eyeing up a striker this summer, providing manager Arsene Wenger considers him as an “exceptional” talent. The Gunners have long been linked with Benzema, and even existing striker Olivier Giroud as called on the long-serving boss to bolster their attack to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
While Benzema has never looked for an exit from the Santiago Bernabeu, he could well considering a move should teammate Cristiano Ronaldo be made a centre-forward next season under manager Rafael Benitez. Real have so many options in attack for the new campaign, and the likes of Benzema may find himself subsidiary as a result.
Arsenal have enjoyed two successful seasons, winning back-to-back FA Cups, as well as impressing in the Premier League. Many feel a top-level striker is what they’re lacking to win the title again, and 888 Sport are backing the Gunners with odds of 13/2 to make the Frenchman theirs this summer.
The former Lyon hitman has been consistent in front of goal for Real, and would certainly be a useful addition to a strikeforce in need of real quality.
