Arsenal target Karim Benzema has updated his current situation through his Instagram page amid rumours on Twitter that he’s set to conduct a medical in north London imminently.
Talk has been rife this week suggesting that the Frenchman will jet into London Colney to undergo a medical with a deal seemingly agreed between the two clubs (via the Express).
However, after missing out on Real Madrid’s opening La Liga game Sporting Gijon with the Spanish giants held to a goalless draw, Benzema has informed his fans that he’s returned to training for his current club.
It seems as though the forward is only interested in resuming full fitness and helping Real Madrid get off to a good start and record their first La Liga victory.
Arsenal transfer news
This, by any means, doesn’t necessarily suggest that a move is impossible, especially considering that Mesut Ozil played three games for Los Blancos before joining us on deadline day.

However, with no concrete links suggesting that Benzema’s departure is imminent, reports linking us to the 27-year-old could prove to be baseless.
