Not Benzema – Arsenal have Moved in to Agree $63million Star Signing

Arsenal need to sign a top class goalscorer and may have to hire the services of top playmakers as well to reinforce their squad in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners do not have a clinical finisher in their squad and that problem can be solved by Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, who is linked with a move to the Emirates (via Don Balon).

As far as the attacking midfield is concerned, at the moment, the North Londoners have got quality players like Ozil, Alexis, Walcott, Iwobi and Chamberlain.

However, Mesut and Sanchez may depart this summer and in such a scenario, Arsenal are preparing to sign Yacine Brahimi and Max Meyer (The Sun).

For quite some time, Arsenal have been linked with the Algerian star, whose current deal with Porto will expire in 2019 and has a (The Sun) release clause of 50.5million pounds ($63million).

The 27-year-old star can be deployed in multiple attacking position but he usually starts on the left hand side of the attack. As per the provided Sun link, Arsenal have moved in and asked the Primeira Liga side about signing the versatile playmaker.

The former Granada star has so far featured in 19 league games for the Portuguese giants in the current campaign, scored 5 goals and provided 4 assists. Yacine is a quality player but he is not a world class star like Alexis Sanchez, who has netted 18 goals and provided 10 assists in 30 league games for the Gunners this season.

In your opinion, is Brahimi good enough to replace Sanchez?

    No way but Yacine is a gr8 player but not as good as Alexis but he can also complement Sanches if Arsenal’re really serious 4 him.
