BBC: Arsenal Officially Announces the Signing of Free Transfer Agent

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Premier League Giants, Arsenal are reportedly still chasing the signature of Real Madrid hero Karim Benzema and are said to have already made a €40million bid for the striker, according to report from Sport Witness.

Both Gunners and Borussia Dortmund are said to be keen on the player, but Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo are desperate to keep hold of the Frenchman.

It is believed, however, that Florentino Perez would be willing to sell Benzema and would be open to accepting a reported offer of €60million made by Dortmund for his services.

The French forward himself would reportedly only want to leave Real Madrid if it was to join a Premier League club.

The North Londoners have long been reported interested in bringing Benzema to the Premier League, with the player’s agent said to be ‘well aware’ of the interest from the club in his player.
