Believe it or not the long awaited deal is steps away to completion. I must say welcome Benz to the Emirates. The Arsenal-Benzema saga is close to be laid to rest pretty soon. The deal has been on for almost a month now,Arsenal being on high alert and ensuring that their title campaign is well under way,they have been chasing this deal. The signing is said to have been agreed by Real Madrid .
According to former Manchester City ace Rodney Marsh, who claims the Gunners have had a £48million bid for the 27-year-old accepted by Los Blancos. He said this and I quote:
“I had a phone call from a mate of mine, and he’s been right on many things, and he said that he believes Real Madrid have accepted a bid somewhere in the region of £48million for Benzema from Arsenal,” Marsh told talkSPORT.
“In the past this guy has always been right, he’s never been wrong yet, so we’ll have to wait and see.”
[ad name=”HTML-1″]Earlier on i showed you a tweet where the former Manchester City backed up his claims on Twitter. Arsenal have been chasing this already accepted deal for long now,and if this reports are something to go by then,Arsenal may be well on track into reviving their title hopes.Arsenal are actually in need of help in the attacking front. For them to go on and on into winning the premier league ,then a worldclass frontman is really needed ,to steer head the attacking campaign at the Emirates.
Many believe a striker is the missing piece in an otherwise strong Gunners team, with club legend Thierry Henry saying Arsenal can end their wait for a top flight title by signing Benzema this summer.Giroud who is currently Arsenal main striker has been hampered by injuries mostly. His form especially came into perspective only towards the end of the season. He is one great player i must say. His pressure to the defenders has been
key to helping Arsenal score some few goals in last seasons campaign.
[ad name=”HTML-1″]Benz is said to be headed to the Emirates next week ,and get his medical test done. With Benitez not planning to use his at the fore front this season. Benz is very excited about this transfer. Because for one at Arsenal ,first team action will most certainly be for him,despite Walcott’s great form in the pre-season,Wenger still believes that he is not the man to lead Arsenal’s attack.
The great day is near here.I will keep you posted for any happenings concerning this deal.
