Arsenal’s pursuit of world-class striker coming to a close

Karim BenzemaIt is news that has had the boozy Transfer Tavern punters excited since the very start of this transfer window, and now it looks set to really give the Gunners something to drink about.

Karim Benzema’s potential move to the Emirates has started to become a real saga, with the ‘will he or won’t he’ debate a daily feature in the pub.

However today it is looking increasingly more likely that the French striker will sign for Arsenal, with the Express reporting that it could be as simple as Benzema handing in a transfer request.

With Real Madrid reportedly in a large amount of debt they would be very willing to accept a £45 million fee, but the transfer will only happen if Benzema asks to leave.

Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern had this to say: “Arsenal might be a big club, but I can’t see Benzema asking to leaving Madrid – he would be mad!”

A group of Gooners here in the Transfer Tavern over by the billiards table are all getting very excited about the prospect of the Frenchman plying his trade at the Emirates Stadium, but are sceptical as to whether the deal will actually materialise.

What do you think Arsenal fans? Can Wenger tempt Benzema? Will he leave Real Madrid? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below!
