If the reports in Spain and France are anything to go by, Karim Benzema will be joining Arsenal in the January transfer window. According to the reports, Arsenal will look to take advantage of Karim Benzema’s unsettled situation at Real Madrid.
The Frenchman became the club’s clear number one striker choice after the sale of Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli but has endured fierce abuse from supporters. He has scored four goals so far this season but that does not seem to be enough to keep the Madrid fans happy.
He was targeted early on in the victory over Getafe with jeers aimed at the striker before the match kicked off. It is worth mentioning that not all of the fans share the same view with a small section of supporters applauding the Frenchman’s efforts.
However, this reaction is not a new thing and Benzema looks to have finally had enough. He rejected the chance to sign for Arsenal on deadline day but may jump at the chance in January if as expected Arsene Wenger will go again for the striker .
Arsenal are still in the market for a world class striker despite Olivier Giroud’s fantastic start to the season. Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney are other names being mentioned but Benzema remains Arsene’s favourite choice.
