Arsenal’s dream signing could be completed very soon, if claims made by ESPN reporter Jeinny Lizarazo are true.
The Venezuelan Lizarazo, who is a model and actress as well as a presenter for the US sports network, tweeted on Saturday morning to say that she had heard on the grapevine that Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema was due in London for a Gunners medial today.
Benzema has been linked with Arsenal for what seems like an eternity.
While Benzema may well end up at Arsenal, Miss Lizarazo is not considered a trusted source.
She was subjected to a lot of abuse after posting the tweet. Many of the replies to her are unpublishable.
One thing’s for certain, if Benzema does sign today, Arsenal fans are going to be very happy, regardless of how they get on against West Ham United.
Well…JUST IN…first time one of my sources confirmed the rumor that the plan is Benzema coming to London today for medical…let’s see
