Karim Benzema continues to be in the news for Arsenal as reports say the Real Madrid forward is set for a medical ahead of a proposed move to North London.
As stated by the express, the shocking news came from a Real Madrid fan who is also a Venezuelan born ESPN reporter, Jenny Lizarazo. She tweeted the following:
“Well…JUST IN…first time one of my sources confirmed the rumor that the plan is Benzema coming to London today for Medical…let’s see”
The FA cup winners had a bad day in the office following their shocking defeat to West Ham on their first outing in the EPL. Oliver Giroud who found the net just once in the pre-season games, was unable to find the back of the net with so many clear cut chances created for him. The call for the acquisition of a centre forward heightened after that defeat to the Hammers.
Following the signing of Petr cech from Chelsea, Arsenal have been relatively quiet in the transfer market this summer. If this news is anything to go by, Arsenal fans must be relishing this news of Benzema’s medical already.
The 27-year-old France international is not guaranteed a place in Madrid’s first team and is unsettled at the club. He will no doubt walk into Arsenal’s first team and has been tipped to do well.
