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.
Benzema has not been in poor form, even though Real Madrid had a disappointing season without a trophy, but the report claims that they might be willing to sell the striker that has scored well over a hundred goals for them for as little as £17.8 million.
And with the Arsenal boss said to be very keen on getting the transfer done, us fans could soon have a huge reason for celebration and optimism. How cool would this be?
