Arsenal fans are still waiting with bated breath for Marsh’s latest update, although many are sceptical after hearing several similar stories over the past few weeks.

Benzema would be the ideal striker signing for the Gunners: a significant upgrade on the likes of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck.
But Real Madrid would surely only contemplate selling the 27-year-old if they had a replacement lined up.
While Rafael Benitez is keen to try out either Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo in the centre-forward position this season, Benzema will still start the season as Real Madrid’s main number nine.
