Karim Benzema expected at Arsenal today: Striker to be in director’s box for West Ham clash, squad number revealed

French international has already been handed squad number.

Arsenal are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign long-term target Karim Benzema today with a number of sources stating that the Real Madrid man could be at the Emirates Stadium today.

Karim Benzema has scored 133 goals in six seasons at Real Madrid but could be set to leave the Spanish capital ahead of a move to North London.

Such a move would greatly improve Arsene Wenger’s attack and would represent a second world-class summer signing following the capture of Chelsea keeper Petr Cech earlier in the transfer window.

Benzema would provide Wenger a far more prolific marksman to lead his attack than current first-choice starter Olivier Giroud and reports today claim Arsenal are ready to break their transfer record to land the forward as well as preparing an offer of over £150k a week, which would make the Real Madrid star the club’s highest-earner (via The Daily Mail).
