Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema has been struggling a lot to get the ball behind nets this season. He has so far scored only two goals in La Liga and as per some reports, coach Zinedine Zidane is considering to bring the new attacker to the club. The reports also claimed that the Frenchman has initially agreed to move to Emirates as he has been on the radar of Arsene Wenger since a couple of seasons.
Mirror reported, the former Lyon man might possibly join the Gunners this month for the reported fee of £35 million, though the asking price of the Los Blancos is £52.3 million.
Real Madrid paid $35 million for Benzema in 2009 to bring him to the Santiago Bernabeu. Since then he has scored 124 La Liga goals in 275 matches. He was the key member of the team while they won 2 La Liga, 3 Champions League, 1 Copa Del Rey cup and several other titles.
Benzema has not been so noticeable with his performance on the field this season. With the low scoring rate, the team has already been knocked out of Copa Del Rey and is 16 points below the league leader Barcelona in La Liga.
