It was a transfer rumour that dogged this boozy Transfer Tavern for almost the entire summer, the talk of Karim Benzema making a move to North London was one of those bits of gossip that turned into a real saga, refusing to leave the pub for many months.
So when the transfer window slammed shut a few weeks ago, many Arsenal fans were left aggrieved and pretty angry with with their manager Arsene Wenger, as a deal for the french striker, who formerly played at Lyon, failed to materialise.
And the news coming into the Transfer Tavern today is making the tipsy Gunners even more annoyed about this situation, as Metro are reporting that trusted Spanish football expert Kike Marin has publicly confirmed that the Real Madrid striker ‘flirted’ with a move to Arsenal over the past few months and was open to a deal at one point in time.
This news surely makes the fact they ended up missing out on Benzema even worse?
