The name on the fans lips for most of this window has been Real Madrid and France superstar striker, Karim Benzema.
Now, Metro are reporting that there is evidence to suggest a deal has been struck with the player and Spanish club alike, with Benzema arriving at The Emirates this coming week.
According to Italian Journalist, Emanuele Giulianelli, Arsene Wenger put in a club record bid of £45 million and it has been accepted by the Spanish giants. It is also reported that Benzema, who has been a long time target of the Arsenal boss will pull on the No.9 shirt when he eventually turns out for the North London outfit.
Our resident Arsenal fans enjoying the beer and burger special over by the bar here in the Tavern, feel that if they managed to sign Benzema, they would easily be in with a shout of the Premier League title – and he would definitely help provide that lethal edge upfront that is currently lacking at the club.
What do you think Arsenal fans? Has Benzema finally decided to sign for you? Or is this just more rumours? Let us know your thoughts below!
