Arsenal hero Ian Wright is definitely feeling the strain in the transfer window, and expressed his desperation regarding our potential move for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
Despite the consistent denials from both camps, there remain strong reports emanating from Spain claiming that Benzema is still being targeted by Arsene Wenger, with the boss planning a €60million move to land his compatriot (via the Metro).

Wright took to his Twitter page and filled the 140 characters allocated for each tweet with the ‘praying emoji’, indicating that he’s hopeful that we can land the 27-year-old.
Arsenal transfer news
It’s rather difficult to find a similar case to the one currently felt by the majority of the fanbase regarding Benzema. Never before have we collectively identified one player who will almost certainly complete the jigsaw as we look to clinch our first league title since 2004.
We would definitely have a team envied by the rest of the Premier League if we were to add a player of Benzema’s calibre, and hopefully the club can pull this deal off.
