Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema edging closer to joining Arsenal?

Karim BenzemaThere are some jubilant scenes here inside the Transfer Tavern today, with anyone thinking that Arsenal have all but confirmed the signing of Karim Benzema going on the rate the boozy Gunners are going through the Transfer Tavern’s supply of beer and ale!

The Telegraph are running a huge report that puts all the pieces together and says a deal that will see Karim Benzema arrive at the Emirates is edging closer. Yesterday, William Hill slashed their odds and now have a Benzema to Arsenal transfer at odds-on!

When considering that at the start of this transfer window the odds told a very different story, with the 27-year old French striker looking set to stay at Real Madrid, the way the betting landscape has changed is making many punters in the Tavern suggest a deal MUST be close to completion!
