Arsenal Set to Make Bid for Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria, Says Report: Nightly Soccer Report

Believe it not or believe it maybe, but Metro newspaper is reporting tonight that Arsenal are set to make a £40million bid for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.

The newspaper doesn’t attempt to include any source or attribution to the transfer rumor, and the likelihood of Benzema signing with Arsenal seems a long shot when the Gunners have much worse problems to resolve — namely finding a defensive midfielder and adding depth to their defense.

But perhaps there is a grain of truth to this story? Thanks to a tip from World Soccer Talk reader named David, BBC Sport is reporting tonight that Arsenal are trying to sign both Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid.

Here are tonight’s world soccer news headlines:

Premier League

Serie A
