Arsenal and Manchester United to battle for £40m striker


Arsenal and Manchester United are ready to go head-to-head to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.

According to Express Sport, the Gunners would be ready to sell France's Olivier Giroud to be able to make a top offer for the 27-year-old.

The Red Devils, on the other hand, are ready to include goalkeeper David De Gea - rated at £30m - in the negotiations.

Benzema scored 22 goals in 46 games for Real Madrid this season and was already a target for Arsenal during last summer's transfer window.

Meanwhile, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he is not interested in signing Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

"No [we are not after him]," the 65-year-old is quoted as saying by talkSPORT.

"We look at all players but we are not especially in for Callum Wilson."
