Karim Benzema has been closely linked with the Gunners since a long time now. Initially it was reported that Real Madrid would not allow its star striker to leave the club this summer. Madrid manager Rafa Benitez himself had confirmed that Benzema will not leave the club. But recent reports suggest that Benzema is on his way to London.

Real Madrid are still in pursuit of Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea. In order to lure the Spaniard’s services the club have to spend a huge transfer fee to United. It is believed that Benzema’s move to Emirates Stadium will fuel up the De Gea move in favour of Real Madrid.

Arsenal legend Theirry Henry too had opined that Benzema’s arrival at the club would do wonders. Arsenal will be title favourites if the Frenchman joins the club.
