It certainly makes you wonder where all these media stories about Karim Benzema moving to Arsenal came from. Right from the beginning of the transfer window it was mooted that the Real Madrid striker was the only real target that interested Arsene Wenger.
If you thought the start of La Liga season had no impact on the Premier League, think again. The tremors of the dull draw between Real Madrid and the newly promoted Sporting Gijon could be felt as far as North London. The stutter of the much acclaimed Los Blancos sent a message to the Emirates that Karim Benzema is Still needed more at Real than he is at Arsenal.
It just goes to show that there is an amazing amount of websites out there that just churn out Arsenal transfer stories – with the word Benzema in the title – simply to get the clicks to increase their advertising revenue, but when a so-called National Daily newspaper does it, it gets even more annoying.
Arsenal fans will soon see back of Mourinho! by Sam P
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have already been able to celebrate this year with our first victory over a Chelsea team, or any for that matter, that was managed by our manager´s arch rival Jose Mourinho. Now while that win that gave us the Community Shield trophy was sweet, it does not really help Arsenal to get the trophy we really want, the Premier League crown.
Right this is definitely the last post I ever write about Karim Benzema coming to Arsenal until it is announced on Sky or the BBC. We know that Arsene Wenger is anally secretive when it comes to talking about his transfer targets in public, and we expect him to throw journalists off the scent until the deal is done and dusted, and even then it is not reported on the official Arsenal website for at least another week.
If this is true and it ends up with Arsenal missing out on the transfer of the France international Karim Benzema from Real Madrid, then it will be absolutely unforgivable penny pinching on the part of Arsenal Football Club or the manager.
Despite the ongoing protestations from Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal transfer rumours linking the club with Karim Benzema just will not go away and there is a strong feeling in the football media that our manager is not being entirely honest about his hopes of signing the France international star.
There is some very good news for Gooners if the latest Arsenal transfer rumour turns out to be true, and boy do we need it after the horror film that was our first home game of the Premier League season. The good news is Karim Benzema and that his transfer to Arsenal is very much on and could be completed a lot sooner than any of us thought.
