This would be a great piece of timing for Arsenal if it happens, quite apart from the fact that completing the transfer of Karim Benzema from Real Madrid would be a fantastic bit of business from the Gunners. If the Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli´s latest update on the saga, reported by Metro, is true then it should give the Arsenal players and fans a huge boost.
The reporter claims that Arsene Wenger has all but sewn up the deal abd that the Gunners have laid on a private jet to bring the striker to London from Spain tomorrow, where he will be put up in a hotel and get his medical done before signing on the dotted line.
And as long as there is no setback, our new signing will then be announced and unveiled at the Emirates Stadium shortly before the Premier League clash with Liverpool gets underway. Imagine the boost to the home ground atmosphere that will produce. How could we lose after that?
