Karim Benzema: Will Arsene Wenger's Interest in Him Translate into a Transfer?
Recently Arsene Wenger admitted his interest in Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema. The Gunners have been linked with him for sometime now, but nothing concrete has ever emerged from the rumors. Benzema has been in good form this season as he filled the gap left by the injury to Gonzalo Higuain well and scored plenty of goals.
He struggled initially this season, but as the season has progressed, he has come of his own and has shown the form that made Real Madrid spend £35 million on him.
But he may struggle to hold onto a starting place with the return of Higuain and with Madrid all set to buy another striker.
There have been recent reports that Arsene Wenger may abandon his strict transfer policy to buy the Frenchman. He is currently valued at £20 million, and although that may be beyond Wenger’s normal budget, it could prove to be a shrewd piece of business, as Benzema is just 23 right now.
Is it a good move for the Gunners?
Arsene Wenger has admitted that he likes the player and if he does sign him, it would be a fantastic bit of business considering his talent, age and potential. He will be the solution to Arsenal’s striking woes and with Bendtner looking set to leave, will add some real quality and bite to the Arsenal attack that has looked flat of late. This would give the Gunners two strikers who can score 20 plus goals a season in van Persie and Benzema. Chamakh would then take up the substitutes role and will be the back up to these players. That would provide the Gunners with some remarkable fire power up front that can finally convert their domination into tangible success.
Arsene Wenger should look to use a two striker formation next season and signing Benzema would be the perfect move as it would allow van Persie a freer role and at the same time provide the Gunners a target man to target.
Every Arsenal fan would love to see the prospect of him joining the Gunners and forming a deadly partnership with van Persie.
