Phew! Alexis snubs Madrid for new Arsenal contract

Arsenal fans can start thanking their lucky stars because it looks like our sensational Chilean striker is going to be at the club for years to come. So we can look forward to a lot more magnificent moments from Alexis Sanchez while the rest of the Premier League , especially the defenders, can look forward to a lot more trouble from the Arsenal attack.

When Alexis first joined the Gunners there was an element of fortune about the transfer because our EPL rivals Liverpool really wanted to sign him and it could have been very different as it was their player Luis Suarez that was heading to Barcelona and making Alexis decide to leave.

Arsenal to announce Benzema signing TOMORROW?

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.

Arsenal set to seal Benzema transfer NEXT WEEK?

If this does happen when the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are suggesting then it will save us Arsenal fans a whole lot of hair being pulled out and nails being bitten over the last few days of the summer transfer window.

And it will give everyone connected with Arsenal Football Club a huge boost, perhaps even more than last year’s capture of Alexis Sanchez and the previous year’s signing of Mesut Ozil did.

According to a couple of well respected football journalists, our transfer bid for the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema is very much on, although Arsene Wenger has still apparently not gone all out with the money on offer.

Others want him but Arsenal WILL seal Benzema transfer

This is the first I have heard that Arsenal have a few other clubs trying to beat us to the transfer of the French striker Karim Benzema, although it is hardly a surprise as the 27-year old is one of the best centre forwards available in world football today.

Perhaps the desire to keep the potential availability of the player secret is the main reason for Arsene Wenger being so evasive and non-committal all the way through the summer window, as the Arsenal manager has been stung before in these sort of situations.

Arsenal WILL now PUSH for Benzema transfer

Reading between the lines of what Arsene Wenger has been saying in response to all the Arsenal transfer rumours about Karim Benzema, I think that the Gunners will sign the striker from Real Madrid if we can. But Wenger has been happy to wait until the last few days of the transfer window and see whether the player pushes for the transfer away from his current club.

After losing to West Ham and losing all our momentum and positive vibes into the bargain, however, the need for Wenger to push more is clear. Not only do we need that extra world class player but we need a transfer to give the current players a boost before the season slips away from us once again.

YES! Benzema transfer to Arsenal CONFIRMED!!

According to the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, all the noise coming from Arsene Wenger this summer on the subject of his current strike force and the possibility of Arsenal signing from Real Madrid has simply been smoke and mirrors to throw us and the football media off the scent.

Because the France international will be heading to north London and the Premier League before the end of the summer transfer window and Benzema is very happy and excited about the transfer, according to a Metro report. This brilliant deal has been confirmed by the Otalian football journalist Emanuelle Giulianelli, so hopefully this guy knows what he is talking about and is somehow privy to the goings on behind the scenes.

Benzema says YES to €50m transfer to Arsenal?

This could be the icing on the pre-season cake for Arsenal fans if Arsene Wenger can get the transfer deal for the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema done and dusted before our first Premier League game of the season against West Ham in less than two weeks.

A lot depends on what the French centre forward meant by his cryptic post on social media today, as reported by Metro, although he did seem to suggest that a new stage in his life and possibly football career was about to begin.

Why Arsenal boss is being patient on Benzema transfer

After quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a move for the France international striker this summer, The Sun revved up the rumour mill today by reporting that the Gunners were ready with an offer of around £40 million to tempt his current club Real Madrid to sell.

But the Arsenal fans soon had to rein in our hopes of signing this striker, as Arsene Wenger personally denied the rumour in a pre-season press conference reported by Sky Sports. Or did he?

The Arsenal boss had this to say on the subject, “I don’t know where that story has come from. But that’s not happening at the moment.”

Arsenal serious about signing La Liga goal machine

This transfer to Arsenal could only go through if the current club of Karim Benzema were happy to let the striker leave. But that is what the noises coming from Spain and Real Madrid are saying, according to a Metro report.

Arsenal have done business with the Spanish giants before, when Arsene Wenger smashed the club transfer record to sign the German creative midfielder Mesut Ozil. Madrid were willing to sell then because they were signing Gareth Bale from Tottenham and they needed to make room and maybe that is the same situation this summer.

Cazorla can SMILE As Casillas set for Arsenal transfer!

The Arsenal midfield maestro Santi Cazorla has spoken up this week about how he would love to see his team mate from the Spain national side come to north London to become a Gunner, but he also said that he thinks that Iker Casillas would prefer to stay with his boyhood club Real Madrid.

But after the Champions League holders only managed a 2-2 draw against Valencia in La Liga at the weekend, Casillas was targeted once again by a section of the Madrid fans. The keeper has suffered this before despite all he has done in over a decade for the club and he reacted angrily to the jeering of the fans.
