Yes, this is your go-to source for all things Karim Benzema. We understand if you're getting fatigued, and those feelings are absolutely valid. After all, he's nearly overshadowed what's shaping up to be one of the most competitive Arsenal squads since the Invincibles. However, in the face of both Benzema's current club manager and Arsene Wenger denying a move to the Emirates, the smoke has, and is, only been building closer and closer to a full-on forest fire.
Which brings us to BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey's tweet from about an hour ago:
A source who is rarely wrong tells me Arsenal are close to the signing that would make them genuine contenders. We shall see...— Jake Humphrey (@mrjakehumphrey) August 7, 2015
HMMMMMMMMM I wonder what player's he talking about huh.
Our favorite Italian journalist has done nothing but continue to tweet about details surrounding a Benzema move to Arsenal, such as what shirt number he will wear at Arsenal (9, in case you were curious), since he infamously, randomly, burst into the scene a few days ago.
Things are starting to build up. I'm trying hard to keep my feelings at arm's length, but the more things like that tweet come out from non-Twitter ITKs, the more I wonder if it's a matter of when, and not if.
