Arsene Wenger is obsessed with Benzema and Varane, Arsenal want Madrid players in January [Punto Pelota]
Thursday night in Spain saw the latest episode of football show Punto Pelota, and the show’s transfer inside-man François Gallardo announced a rumour involving Arsenal’s plans to raid Real Madrid this winter.
In a typically over-dramatic, theatrical segment, Gallardo, after shifting his glasses a few times and waiting for the music to affect the atmosphere, claimed that Arsene Wenger is obsessed with Karim Benzema and Raphael Varane, and Arsenal want to sign both Real Madrid players in January.
An English team will try and strengthen in the winter by turning to Madrid to try to take two players of the Santiago Bernabéu.
Arsenal want to reinforce their squad in the winter and will go for Benzema and Varane. Karim is the ‘darling’ of Wenger, who is obsessed with him, and Raphael is also admired, but the operation is not viable.
Karim, obviously, will not leave in January. It is unfeasible. The other player that Arsene has in mind is Raphael Varane. Wenger’s obsession will come to the fore in January, but neither transfer is workable.
