The Emirates will soon be welcoming a huge signing! Yes it will, and so says Italian journalist and Arsenal enthusiast Emnauele Giulianelli.
The respected Italian who is a familiar name among Arsenal supporters regarding the Benzema transfer to the Emirates is here again. And this time it appears he is so confident.
As per Giulianelli, Karim Benzema will be unveiled as an Arsenal player before Monday’s Premier League game against Liverpool at the Emirates stadium in London.
The Gunners have reportedly chartered a private jet to fly Benzema to London and have plans in place already for the Frenchman to lodge in a five-star hotel in London ahead of his medical to with the FA Cup champions on Monday.
Emanuele Giulianelli [@EmaGiulianelli] wrote on his official Twitter page that Arsenal have rented a jet to fly Benzema in: “Arsenal are believed to have rented a Gulfstream private jet to accommodate Benzema on Sunday evening”
“He will have a medical Monday early afternoon and be confirmed just before kick off. He will stay in 5 stars hotel London center.”
Although the Italian believes Benzema could be presented as an Arsenal player before their Premier League match against, the Telegraph reckons there could be an intriguing twist to the transfer as Manchester United are also interested in the former Lyon striker.
Benzema boasts an impressive goal haul of 133 in 281 appearances for Los Blancos since joining the Spanish giants in 2009. Hence, if Arsenal manage to pull of this deal Benzema will no doubt boost Arsene Wenger’s side and with the influx of creative players scattered all over in the Arsenal team, the 27-year old goal poacher would enjoy adequate services from the midfield.
