Journo: Benzema To Arrive At Arsenal On Sunday, Will Wear No.9 Shirt

By on August 7, 2015

We’ve had yet another update from our favourite journalist with Emanuele Giulianeli claiming that today’s meeting between Arsenal and Real Madrid went well and Karim Benzema is due to arrive in London on Sunday.

Giulianeli claimed earlier this week that Arsenal chiefs would arrive in Spain on Friday to hold formal talks with Madrid and put forward an official €50m offer agreeing personal terms with Benzema over a four-year deal worth €9m-per-season.

The Italian journalist has now updated his Twitter followers – which are rising by the hour thanks to his apparent inside scoops – this evening to say that today’s meeting went well and a deal is understood to be close.

He went on to claim that the French international striker will arrive in London on Sunday – presumably to complete his move to Arsenal – and will wear the No.9 shirt at the Emirates this season.

Here are the Tweets:

The journalists sensational claims are starting to get picked up by the British media but it’s almost impossible to know if there is any truth behind it all.

Giulianeli does work for the likes of La Gazzetta dello Sport, FIFA Weekly and FourFourTwo so you’d think he has a certain amount of credibility but these reports appear too good to be true.

This fella is either going to become an absolute legend if we end up signing Benzema, or the focus of some serious Twitter bashing from angry Gooners if the deal fails to come to fruition.

Obviously I’m hoping Giulianeli’s information is solid but I’m not going to get too excited just yet and will reserve my judgement until something more concrete comes out.

We’ve seen too many so-called ‘In The Knows’ make bold statements only for nothing to come of it, but the Benzema-to-Arsenal rumours are steadily intensifying by the day.

As I’ve said before, I think Arsene Wenger is pretty confident he’ll manage to sign the striker this summer, despite his public denials. We should all know by now not to believe a word he tells the media!

Stay tuned for more updates, I’m sure it won’t be long until another ‘development’ occurs…..

    On the 6th August 2015, we read about Benzema completing signing deal on the 7th August 2015, it did not happen as was promised by the media, on Saturday, it was reported again that, Benzema will be at Arsenal on Sunday to complete the signing deal. If it does not happen again, it is carried forward to another date, How do we know the truth? Are you guys doing a proper research before reporting all these rumors? I am not sure, a good reporter will give a good story to tell. We demand proper research guys, because that is your profession.

    Let’s hope all the talking stops soon & we see some action because l don’t about my
    other fellow Gooners but l’m nearly pulling my bloody hair out,if Benzema is not going to come over to the premiership & if he’s injured that bad then why don’t they
    say pissoff he’s not leaving,and we can look at someone else,l mean Mario Gotze put a spanner in the works by saying he’s undecided whether he’ll stay at Bayern Munich,
    now we could really do with a player of his calibre!!!!!!!

    To me I think d medias are sort of playing us. If they’re giving us d truth, I think arsenal should have signed benzema 2weeks ago.
