Real Madrid striker and Arsenal target Karim Benzema has dropped a huge hint through his Instagram page that he could be set for a move by posting the message: ‘Let us leave the past in the past’.
Benzema has been heavily linked with us over the past few weeks, with reports insisting that the Frenchman is Wenger’s No.1 transfer target (via El Confidencial).
The 27-year-old travelled with the Real Madrid squad to China but was an unused substitute in their 3-0 victory against Inter Milan on Monday.
In the image the Frenchman uploaded he’s on a private jet, which will certainly excite us fans as we’re desperate to see a world class striker come through the door.
Arsenal transfer news
Our squad is certainly close to completion following the arrival of Petr Cech, and Wenger has repeatedly stated that only world-class players will be added into the squad.

Benzema is certainly a player of that calibre and would immediately catapult us to the position of potential title winners.
The full message roughly translated as “Let us leave the past in the past.. #rip #DirectionFuture”.
