The Premier League presenter doesn’t make a habit of feeding fans bits of information regarding transfer news, however, given that he works alongside Martin Keown and Ian Wright, he may have some inside knowledge.
Benzema’s reported move has gathered pace over the past few days and the club are confident of landing our man over the next few weeks, according to the Metro.

Humphrey’s reference to a player capable of winning us the title suggests that the mystery signing will most likely be a forward, given that it’s a position that many feel we’ve been short in ever since the departure of Robin van Persie.
Benzema is undoubtedly the name heavily linked with us at the moment and one gets the feeling that should we fail to land the Frenchman, we’ll go into the season with the squad we currently have.
