The Karim Benzema to Arsenal rumours seem to be picking up speed, with things snowballing out of control after the Real Madrid star dropped a number of massive hints.
The most recent hint was the Frenchman following an Arsene Wenger themed account on Instagram named wengerland, something footballers often do prior to a move.
Check out the image below of Benzema’s recent follows:
This alone wouldn’t be enough to suggest the 27-year-old is Arsenal bound, but a string of recent reports all back the theory up.
The Metro recently claimed we were plotting a £40.5m move for Wenger’s compatriot, an increase on what the report claims was our original £30.3m bid.

Things were further backed up Benzema himself, who took to Instagram to drop an absolute bombshell.
He was pictured on a private jet, with the caption roughly translating as “Let us leave the past in the past.. #rip #DirectionFuture”
The world class forward certainly seems to be on his way to the Emirates, and could prove to be the signing of the summer.
Arsenal transfer news
We are arguably just a signing or two away from challenging Europe’s elite for the highest honours, and Benzema would go along way towards making us real contenders.
This one actually seems to be happening Arsenal fans, so it might actually be time to start getting excited.
