Arsenal have been linked with a plethora of strikers this transfer window, and so far all we have failed in the pursuits to sign one of these players. The trend looks to be remaining as Benzema’s agent has effectively said that Benzema has no chance of joining Arsenal.
“We can’t stop the rumours. But I tell you: Karim will not go to Arsenal. It’s never been a question for him and no contact has been made.
“He will stay at Madrid. The probable arrival of Gareth Bale at Real Madrid doesn’t threaten him at all. Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale will play on the wings and Karim in the centre.’
“Karim could very well finish his career at Real, the club of his dreams.”
Not much of a surprise that Benzema won’t be leaving as Real only have on num 9 striker. Oh how we should have signed Higuain and got this whole thing done with.
