Fascinating news coming down the wire that Harry Reknapp has been playing the waiting game in relation to capturing what would be a sensational transfer window coup. The player is Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.
The French striker hasn’t had a good run of things with the Spanish giants. The French National squad he limped home from the World Cup under cloud. But Benzema was found himself embroiled in the whole Ribery Hooker scandal and as we have seen in own league with the likes of Rooney and Terry, off field antics have a tangible effect on player’s on field performances.
So, we know that Harry was watching Real last week – Unless of course this was a smokescreen for a sweetie buying operation with Bondy that went wrong – But word is that now the Arsenal coach has been on the blower in an effort to use the old ‘French Connection’ ploy.
Of course the Adebayor loan deal was bound to spark talk of a transfer merry go round, but all of this is completely reliant upon Jose being comfortable to part with a striker he doesn’t appear to treasure that much.
If Arsene does get his man it will be a real blow to Redknapp’s chances of repeating a top four finish. Tottenham’s strikers have an abysmal tally this season and few of them as a result are particularly sought after in the transfer market as a consequence.
