Just when it seems a deal for Karim Benzema is off, a top French Journalist Pierre Menes has confirmed that talks are ongoing for the Real Madrid striker.
The Gunners have been strongly linked with a move for the striker all summer and were reported to have agreed a deal for the forward, but the forward’s agent denied such deal existed and the forward stated on social media that he was happy at Real Madrid, seemingly ending speculations surrounding his transfer.
But influential reporter Menes announced on Canal+ TV that Arsenal are in a meeting with the striker’s agent over a move.
Arsenal fans would be desperate to see a striker come in, with less than 5 days till the transfer window shuts.
Arsene Wenger had earlier revealed that Arsenal are working round the clock on transfers, and this looks to be one of them, though it’s not clear when the meeting took place but it’s thought to be recent.
