There are some new Arsenal transfer rumours going around the football media about our long term transfer target Karim Benzema, who Arsene Wenger has apparently had his beady eye on ever since the French striker was making a name for himself in Ligue 1 with Olympique Lyonnais.
According to The Mirror the often talked about transfer of Benzema to north London could finally be about to happen, with the paper reporting the news from Spain that the Gunners may already have made an offer to Madrid for the centre forward.
The report also claims that the 29-year old is up for the switch to Arsenal to try his hand in the English Premier League and that is probably because he knows that his playing opportunities could soon be seriously curtailed, with rumours growing that the Tottenham and England star Harry Kane is top of the Spanish La Liga champions transfer wish list.
This would all be great for Arsenal as we saw our local rivals lose their talisman while we were able to sign a top class striker in Benzema. We are not that lucky usually, so is this latest Gunners transfer talk a bit too good to be true?
