Arsenal transfer news: Di Maria and Ozil linked with move to the Emirates

A select round-up of transfer news relating to Arsenal, including Karim Benzema, Angel Di Maria, Mesut Ozil and Yohan Cabaye

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Real Madrid trio Benzema, Di Maria and Ozil after it was reported that all three are unhappy at the Santiago Bernabéu.

If they manage to secure the signatures of all three players then it would strengthen the squad in the three areas Arsene Wenger spoke about before his side's 3-1 win against Fulham at the weekend.

It is thought that Real Madrid are trying to fund the signing of Gareth Bale and raise some money in order to try and sign Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Of the three Di Maria is reported to be the most likely as he looks to be pushed out of the side if Gareth Bale arrives. Meanwhile Mesut Ozil looked upset and stormed down the tunnel after being substituted in Madrid's 1-0 win against Granada.

Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye has his heart set on a move to Arsenal after the club submitted a bid for the player last week, his agents expect another bid to come in before the transfer window closes.

Cabaye refused to play in the match against West Ham over the weekend and the interest from Arsenal has seemingly caught his attention, there was also some interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

The bid that was rejected was believed to have been in the region of £11m but Magpies owner Mike Ashley wants at an offer of at least £15m before he'll let his player leave.
