Real Madrid forward and Arsenal target Karim Benzema has caused a social media stir after posting to Instagram a picture of himself on a plane with the caption, ‘Leave the past in the past’.
Inevitably, the rumour mill will run wild with the idea that the Frenchman is – of course – heading to north London to seal a move to the Emirates Stadium.
However, with reports continuing to claim that Arsenal are to make a bid in excess of £40m to land the striker’s signature, and with Arsene Wenger having secured one major signing late on in the past two summer window’s, there’s certainly still a chance that the speculation could prove true.
The possibility of Benzema, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott lighting up Arsenal’s attack next season is certainly a mouth-watering prospect for the Gunners faithful.
