In the aftermath of Karim Benzema’s tweet denouncing a move away from Real Madrid, Arsenal have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Karim Benzema as it seems all hope is not lost yet. Karim Benzema has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal throughout the transfer window and it seemed that the French striker was on the brink of completing a £45 million move to the Emirates. Unfortunately, just few hours to the match between Arsenal and Liverpool.
Benzema dropped a bombshell that broke Arsenal fans hearts claiming he was not on his way out of Real Madrid. However, the 27 year old’s tweet could be regarded as a smokescreen for a potential move to Arsenal as other ex Madrid players like Senidjer, Di Maria , Ozil and Van Da Vaart have all denied claims about leaving the club only for them to end up in another club.
It is being reported that popular French reporter Pierre Menes has claimed on Canal+ TV that a meeting between Arsenal and Benzema’s agent over the transfer of the French Striker has taken place. It would seem attention was directed away from the Benzema transfer so as to help the progression of the deal as the media spotlight was doing more harm than good to the deal.
Fo If this recent report is anything to by, there could be light at the end of the tunnel for Arsenal in the end. With the transfer window closing on Tuesday, Arsenal have just few days to make Benzema an Arsenal player. The last days of the transfer window promises to be fun filled and action packed.
