Arsenal consider Real Madrid star Karim Benzema their priority target for the summer, and are already in talks with his club over a potential summer deal.

According to information in an article by the Express, Arsene Wenger has selected the French striker as the man he wants to lead his line as of next year, and will prioritise his capture ahead of that of other mooted targets such as Mario Balotelli. Benzema, fresh from winning the Champions League in dramatic fashion this weekend, has been linked with an exit from Madrid for some time now, and the rumours that Los Blancos are targeting a new striker of their own have done little to strengthen the notion of him staying.

Following Madrid’s win over Atletico Madrid on Friday night, Wenger hinted at a move for Benzema, claiming that he could see him plying his trade in the Premier League some day. Well, if reports are to be believed then that day could well be approaching faster than many anticipated, as Arsenal look to bolster their attack with a view to increasing the longevity of their title charge next season.

Having scored 20+ goals in each of his last four seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu, Benzema’s record speaks for itself. However Wenger is said to be wary that due to Madrid’s elation at winning the Champions League they may look to keep the current squad together. It’s thought that if they do then Arsenal will instead move for former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli, who is also wanted by Liverpool and Chelsea.
