Arsenal's pursuit of a goalscorer of some repute has led the club to Karim Benzema of Real Madrid, having given up the ghost with regards to Luis Suarez, who Liverpool have no intention of selling a rival.
The Gunners have struggled terribly in the transfer market this summer, but will be hopeful they can conclude a deal for Benzema before the transfer window closes on September 2.
Real Madrid, however, are unwilling to sell Benzema until they can find an adequate placement for the Frenchman, and the Spanish giants will attempt to do what Arsenal could not - sign Suarez.
Benzema and Suarez represent different targets of sorts for Arsenal are both have undoubted ability to score goals at the very top level of the game.
The former has scored 88 goals in 184 appearances for Real Madrid, and would provide Arsenal with the proven cutting edge they lack at present, with Olivier Giroud the man they must rely on.
