Arsenal boss Wenger prefers Villa striker Benteke over Benzema

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is eyeing Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke. The Mail on Sunday says Wenger could still move to land Benteke in January despite Real Madrid offering Karim Benzema to English clubs.

On Benzema, Wenger declared: "I do not think it would be a good idea. In France he competes with Olivier Giroud for the forward position.

"It seems complicated and very difficult to sign him midseason because teams do not usually let their best players to leave in January."
