Arsenal have been negotiating for the transfer of the French International for a while now, Arsenal initial bid of £30.5million was rejected by the Spanish giant, Arsenal have now tabled a fresh bid of £35 million to push the move through and reports suggest the offer has tempted Madrid in selling the clinical finisher.
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 soon.
Giulianelli also claims the management of Arsenal will meet with Madrid today to seal the deal for an offer worth around £35million for the Frenchman.
Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push next season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best in the summer to achieve his target.
The Frenchman is truly a proven striker and many Arsenal fans would like to see the 27-year-old wear the No9 jersey for the Gunners.
With 133 goals in 281 games, Benzema seems like the missing piece to solving the puzzle for the Gunners as Wenger confirmed he would sign only “top players” in the summer, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
