The Karim Benzema to Arsenal transfer rumour seems to have entered full over-drive with reports according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli that the Real Madrid striker will undergo a medical at Arsenal on Monday and will be announced and unveiled to the fans ahead of their Premier League clash against Liverpool.
He will have a medical Monday early afternoon and be confirmed just before kick off. He will stay in 5 stars hotel London center.

Although, the FourFourTwo and La Gazzetta dello Sport writer, who has been updating millions of Arsenal fans on the transfer of Benzema via his Twitter account, poured cold water to his earlier claim of the Gunners sending over a private jet to pick up Benzema on Sunday ahead of a medical on Monday. He however, insisted that the much talked-about transfer of the summer would be completed next week.
Don’t find confirmations about Gulfstream flight (i wrote it was believed), but next week Benzema will be an Arsenal player. — Emanuele Giulianelli (@EmaGiulianelli) August 22, 2015
