Arsenal All Set to Sign £48m Superstar After his Club Accepted the Offer

Premier League giants Arsenal are now closing in on the signing of French international Karim Benzema after La Liga giants Real Madrid accepted the club’s £48m bid for their star striker. The news was reported by former player Rodney Marsh, who spoke to talkSPORT and stated that a contact of his had confirmed that the Gunners had made an official approach for their summer target.

Marsh stated talkSPORT, “I had a phone call from a mate of mine, and he’s been right on many things, and he said that he believes Real Madrid have accepted a bid somewhere in the region of £48million for Benzema from Arsenal. In the past this guy has always been right, he’s never been wrong yet, so we’ll have to wait and see.

Surely, the 27-year-old Frenchman will be a great addition to manager Arsene Wenger’s side and could them make a strong challenge for the Premier League title. The former Lyon man moved to the Bernabeu in 2009 and has since then managed to make a total of 188 appearances for the club, scoring 87 goals.
