Arsenal are ready to offer £17m for Karim Benzema with Real Madrid ready to sell, according to Fichajes.
The Frenchman is one of the many targets for the Gunners to strengthen the offensive department with Manchester United also showing interest.
The Red Devils have identified the 27-year-old as the one to take over from Robin van Persie, who is expected to leave to join Fenerbahce.
Although the Spanish giants are ready to sell, the problem for the two Premier League clubs is that player is not interested in leaving the club, as confirmed by his agent at the start of last month.
"I haven't met with any club in London," agent Karim Djaziri told Marca.
"Not with United and not with anyone else. We haven't held talks with anyone other than Real Madrid.
"What is Karim going to do in Manchester? He's happy in Madrid. He doesn't want to leave.
"Benzema would only leave if Real Madrid told him he was surplus to requirements, because he isn't going to leave of his own accord".
