Karim Benzema arsenal move transfer


Transfer Balls: the summer is here and with comes the return of the story that Arsenal and Liverpool are to sign Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.

The Daily Star tells its readers (and we can see your lips moving):


Arsenal step up attempts to sign Karim Benzema with £17.8m bid

So the Gunners have made a bid for Benzema?

Spanish daily AS are reporting that Arsenal have upped their attempts to sign the French striker after being alerted about his availability. AS say Arsene Wenger is a big fan of Benzema and would love to bring him to England for around £17.8m.

No. Arsenal have not made a bid for Benzema. But if they do it will be for £17.8m. Maybe.

It is unclear at the moment how much Real are demanding for Benzema.

In other words: the player is not on sale. That £17.8m is a guess.


It all smells of utter balls, but to The Metro it means:

Arsenal ‘closing in on Karim Benzema transfer’

The Metro then adds:

Manchester United are also thought to be interested in Benzema

Thought by whom, the Metro doesn’t say.

We’ve been here before, of course:

Daily Express, June 5: “Arsenal set to make Karim Benzema a MASSIVE offer to fend off Man United and Liverpool”

Is £17.8m massive?
