Popular Italian Journalist Emanuele Giulianelli took to his twitter handle to announce Benzema has agreed a four-year deal with the Gunners meaning all rumours of his transfer to the Emirates is as good as done and hopefully he will be on his way to London for Medicals in coming days.
Benzema has been a long term target for the Gunners since his days at Lyon, and has been linked to the Gunners all summer with Arsene Wenger in the hunt for a world class striker this summer.
Arsenal were reported to have had an initial £30.3million bid rejected by Madrid followed by a second offer prepared by the Gunners believed to be around £40.5million.
The 27 year old striker who had previously rejected Arsenal’s advances over time might now be willing to move following reports that Cristiano Ronaldo could be taking over the lone striker position, and Marco Reus reportedly being tracked by Madrid.
There are rumours Arsene wenger is ready to make Karim Benzema the highest paid player if he make the switch; Benzema currently earns £160,000 at Madrid and there is every possibility he will earn a bit above that at Arsenal.
