Spanish Radio network Cadena COPE has allegedly reported that Arsene Wenger has made several calls to Karim Benzema this summer for a possible transfer to the London club.
The credit for the rumor goes to COPE reporter Paco Gonzalez who was heard saying it on a football program called El Partido de las 12.
This is definitely an exciting rumor for Arsenal fans as the news coincides with the tweet from football agent Muzzi Ozcan, who said Arsenal would be complete the “signing of the season” in coming days.
The tweet (in Spanish) which broke the news can be seen below.
PACO GONZÁLEZ:”Wenger ha vuelto a llamar este verano a Benzema, pero no quiere salir del Madrid. Jesé tampoco. Están encantados con Mayoral”
