With the January transfer window edging ever nearer, there are a whole host of transfer rumours emerging and developing. While some of these rumours could end up being the real deal, there are also those that seem highly unlikely, with some landing somewhere in between.
One rumour, which has been running since the Summer, is the one that Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema could be heading to Arsenal. The Gunners have had a fantastic start to the season but, in all honesty, they could do with a little more firepower up front.
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has been on fine form this season but, if anything was to happen to him, Arsenal lack the strength in depth to cover for him. It is no secret that Karim Benzema has been on Arsene Wenger's wish list and January could see a move take place.
With that said, there are those who feel that it is highly unlikely that Karim Benzema will leave Real Madrid and move to the UK to join Arsenal. A recent report even claimed that Arsene Wenger has ruled out the move himself, although that means nothing in football.
Do you think Karim Benzema will join Arsenal in January?
