Italian journalist says Karim Benzema IS joining Arsenal after £45m bid accepted by Real Madrid

Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli has reportedly given a startling update into Arsenal’s quest to sign Karim Benzema by saying that there is a deal on the table for the Real Madrid striker, the Metro reports.

And it appears to be good news, with Giulianelli stating that a move is close to happening after the Gunners submitted a £45m offer for the Frenchman.

Benzema has consistently been mooted as Arsenal’s number one transfer target this summer as the club search for a world class number nine to bolster their front line.

Giulianelli took to Twitter to give the update, insisting that a transfer is a very real possibility after Wenger made a club record £45m offer for his services.
