If only this latest Arsenal transfer rumour came true, it would be the best bit of news for Arsenal for a long time. Just when all the Arsenal fans were resigned to the fact the France international striker Karim Benzema would not be signing for us this summer, the door might be open again.
This is because, as revealed in a Metro report, the Frenchman’s current club Real Madrid are apparently trying to sort out the transfer of the Poland international star Robert Lewandowski.
The player is believed to be not entirely happy at Bayern Munich, especially after being left on the bench for their last Bundesliga game. So if Madrid can get Lewandowski, it could well mean that Benzema would be ready to leave and Arsenal could step in.
And it would be a double boost for the Gunners as it would weaken our main rivals for the top spot in our Champions League group. Come on Madrid, get it sorted!
