CONFIRMED!! Arsenal HELD TALKS To Sign Benzema!!

Benzema has been linked with a £50million move to Arsenal all summer.

The Frenchman took to social media this week to blast the “clowns” claiming he was set for a switch to the Emirates.

But reports in France suggest Arsenal did hold talks with Benzema’s agent.

Journalist Pierre Menes told French TV station Canal + the Gunners held one meeting with the 27-year-old’s representative Karim Djaziri.

Menes claims Arsenal did not move any further in their pursuit of Benzema after the meeting, but stopped short of saying when it took place.

On Monday night Benzema wrote: “For all those clowns who want to make believe things at my fans. Here this is my home ! #HalaMadridYNadaMas” along with a picture of him with his thumbs up wearing Real Madrid kit.

And his agent has insisted he is going nowhere, saying earlier: “Karim is very happy at Real Madrid and he will be a Real Madrid player by the end of this transfer window, 1,000 per cent.

“Karim is not looking to move anywhere this summer.”
