Arsenal fans are still on cloud nine here in the Football Transfer Tavern after seeing their side finally beat Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea to lift the Community Shield, but according to ESPN, their manager might be about to bring them back down to earth.
Arsene Wenger has denied that the club are set to sign Karim Benzema from Real Madrid, and says there is no interest in the forward. We think this is hard to believe, especially considering the way the club are constantly linked with the forward – not to mention the fact that Arsene Wenger seems to have lost faith in Olivier Giroud.
Despite the fact that the Gunners managed to beat Chelsea in what amounts to a pre-season game, we can’t exactly see them going 38 games and being top of the league – unless they buy a top forward.
A bunch of Gooners over by the snooker table here in the Transfer Tavern feel Benzema is the exact type of player that Wenger needs to sign this summer, with all of them feeling that with him, Arsenal have a serious chance of lifting the Premier LEague trophy!
Arsenal fans. Do you think that Benzema will end up a Gooner this summer? Let us know your thoughts below!
