Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Real Madrid hitman Karim Benzema.
That’s 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.
“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.”
Arsene Wenger is on the hunt for a top class frontman as he looks to build a side capable of challenging for Premier League titles.
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.
