Arsenal get HUGE Benzema transfer boost from Real Madrid

Arsenal fans might soon owe a big debt of thanks to the former Liverpool and Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez, because the chubby Spaniard seems determined to help the Gunners complete the stunning transfer of the world class centre forward Karim Benzema.

All the news coming from the Spanish media is that Benitez is not that keen on the French international and that Benzema does not really fit into his plans for the new look Real Madrid. Now Metro are reporting the latest transfer development is that Benitez wants to sign the German international forward Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund.

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.”

Napoli have to wait as Higuain hopes Arsenal will win transfer battle

There was bad news for Arsenal fans in the last couple of days, as the English, Spanish and Italian media all seemed to have decided the future of Gonzalo Higuain. The problem is, that Higuain himself has got a say in the matter and for now he is training normally with his Real Madrid team mates.

If, as the papers claim, Real Madrid and Napoli had reached an agreement over his transfer, and the Argentinean striker was happy with the move to Italy and Serie A, he would not be training today, he would be on a plane to Naples to have his medical.

Why Arsenal should make shock move for Chelsea striker!

In recent weeks Arsenal have been linked with a few strikers such as Christian Benteke, Gonzalo Higuain and Stevan Jovetic just to name a few. Things concerning Benteke at the moment are quiet and Higuain and Jovetic look to be going to Juventus, so who will Arsenal turn to next? David Villa is a good option or Arsene Wenger could take a gamble that would be a great success for the club if it pays off.
