Arsenal ready to wave goodbye to Adebayor and say hello to £30 million Real Madrid & Man United target

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ready to let Emmanuel Adebayor join AC Milan for a fee believed to be around £23 million. It was confirmed yesterday, by the Milan president, Silvio Berlusconi, that the two clubs had been in contact regarding Adebayor's future at the Emirates and it would appear that a deal could be concluded in the coming weeks.

With that done, Wenger will obviously need to bring a new frontman to North London and if you are to believe what you read in the papers, that man will be Lyon's Karim Benzema.

The French international has been linked with several clubs in the past few days, including the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester United, however as of yet, neither club has managed to reach an agreement with Lyon. Arsenal are confident that a bid of £30 million will force Lyon to sell, however the tricky part for them will be to convince Benzema to leave the Stade Gerland.

The 21-year old has stated on several occasions that he would like to remain at Lyon for at least one more season in order to ensure his place in the France World Cup squad. With Arsenal underachieving in terms of silverware in recent years, Wenger knows that this season must see an improvement to prevent key players leaving next summer and with that in mind he needs to bring in a player of the calibre of Benzema.

It will be fascinating to see who Benzema is playing for when the new season kicks off in six weeks time. I for one, hope he is playing Premier League football and personally, I think he would be perfect for Arsenal. Could you imagine seeing Benzema partnering Robin Van Persie in the Arsenal attack next season?

What do you think? Would Benzema be a good replacement for Milan-bound Adebayor? Comments below please.

    I would love to see this guy at the Emirates next season but I highly doubt it. It would be LOVELY if this news is true though, as I have long considered Benzema one of Europe's bests.

    I doubt he can score more than 15 goals in EPL. If not, give more chance to Bendtner, who has been a loyal gunner for years and an uprising star!

    Also, I wonder if Dudu, Vela and Rosicky can share some of the scoring responsibility for us should Adebayor goes.

    Bendtner? Dudu, Vela, Rosicky in front of Benzema? Are you barking mad? Benzema is in a completely different class from our current strikers. Have you ever seen a football, it's the round thing the players kick around.
