ESPN Host: Benzema’s Agent Was At Emirates Wrapping-Up Arsenal Move

By on August 10, 2015

As the fall out from yesterday’s shocking loss to West Ham continues, rumours of Karim Benzema’s move to Arsenal intensify.

A Venezuelan ESPN host going by the name Jenny Lizarazo caused a stir yesterday after claiming on Twitter that her source had informed her that Benzema was due to fly in to London to undergo a medical this weekend.

She obviously gained a lot of attention [it helps that she's also a model] and newspapers like the Express were reporting the news on Sunday afternoon.

Miss Lizarazo has now updated her followers again to claim that Benzema’s agent was at the Emirates yesterday to wrap things up, but there was no further word on if the striker was also in London or how the supposed medical went.

Here are the tweets:

Few would have heard of Jenny Lizarazo before and she’s given no indication as to who her so-called ‘source’ is, so it’s difficult to know how much we can look into her claims, but she does work for ESPN and is a Real Madrid fan so could have some useful contacts.

Her claims come shortly after BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey’s and celebrity Arsenal fan/shareholder Piers Morgan stated on Friday that they’d heard Benzema’s move to Arsenal was close.

As Italian journalist called Emanuele Giulianeli has also been reporting for a week now that the French international was on the verge of moving to North London, so it’s safe to say the speculation has been steadily increasing.

We’ll just have to sit tight and see how this all develops but obviously we’d all love to see Benzema sign for Arsenal. Calls for a new striker have intensified following our loss to the Hammers and although Benzema’s arrival won’t sort out our issues at the back, he’d certainly give us a much-needed lift.

    Arsenal problem is Ramsey and Giroud…the wealks link…we need someone like YAYA or POGBA.. Complement Carzola and Ozil…that is a the perfect team to win the EP.we should have gone for Cabaye Or Vidal…Arsene Wenger is a really useless manager win no brain and ambition.

    Arsenal need to play Rosicky and Walcott week in, week out. That’s all that they need. While Benzema will offer more of an attacking threat, but not signing him does not offer an excuse for not performing. Rosicky and Walcott in the starting eleven, Arsenal win 9 out of 10 games every time.
