Arsenal back in for Benzema

Arsenal are set to reignite their interest in Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema after it was reported that France international has been put up for sale, the Metro understands.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for the striker during the last two transfer windows, as he has struggled in patches during his time in the Spanish capital.

He has however scored over 110 goals in all competitions since signing from Lyon in 2009, and would provide welcome depth to a position where the North Londoners have been short in numbers.

Fellow Frenchman Olivier Giroud is Arsenal’s top league goal scorer this season with fourteen, with midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who missed three-and-a-half months through injury, next on the list with nine.

Arsenal’s win over Hull City on Sunday afternoon kept them in fourth place with three games to play, as Arsene Wenger looks to continue his record of securing qualification for the Champions League for an sixteenth year.

  1. Delford Magaya says:

    Where did you get the information about Arsenal going for Benzama? You always give dozen players to Arsenal but none of them have gone to Arsenal. Benzama is the best man for Arcncelote, so he will not leave Madrid.

  2. cloud says:

    Carlo highly rates Karim and he is one of his TRIO for attack in Madrid. Who in their right mind would sell a player who’s playing well ??

  3. John says:

    A coach who wants a REAL-top striker**

  4. Anwar says:

    Benjima want arsenal

  5. Anwar Ibrahim says:

    In Benzema we trust? Lmao!!!

  6. if u sell Karim B u wil not be nomal at all at this moment

  7. Nonso Emmanuel says:

    if benzima goes 2 arsenal,gud.if he stays @ madrid 5n.we r all 1

  8. TheLankyLlama says:

    Benzema is crucial RM’s attack and they would be pretty stupid to sell him now. It would be different if they had another forward who has proven themselves and needed the money, but they don’t. Benzema, in my opinion, is currently one of the best straight-up forwards in the game.

  9. barry says:

    Reading between the lines & from the rumours floating around, Real Madrid are after a sale for Benzema to bring in the dollars for an atempt at Luis Suarez or Sergio Aguero. 2 very highly priced players capable of covering for Benzema.
    We’ll wait and see how it pans out.

  10. bashiq says:

    i think real looking for saurez in place of karim

  11. sky blue says:

    I think RM will go for kun aguero because he is 10x better than suarez

  12. Blabo says:

    Has we could see lately… Benzema is TOTALY usseles this season…
    Only goals he makes are those lil goalpoaching goals
    Bccs of the fantastic assists of bale and di maria
    And such….
    Only reason he scored more g

  13. Blabo says:

    Goals than last season is bccs theres less competition and more playing time for him this year**

    But stil benzema…. Terrible choice

  14. Abed Jema says:

    That’s nonsense, that I don’t want to hear about. Arsenal needs a classic and talented striker not of Benzema type. He is old and to my opinion he has only two years to play at that level. A youngester is needed to arsenal

  15. paul says:

    I heard rumours that cavani is heading to arsenal. Is that true?

  16. yunero says:

    I heard rumours that cavani is heading to arsenal???
    Are u kidding me paul. Cavani is very ambitious player type. Arsenal can’t afford that winning mentality & trophy

  17. turem says:

    Better take Samuel Eto. More cheap. Plus can lead arsenal in mickey mouse cup

  18. Paul says:

    So Giroud & Benzema are the lethal deadly partnership for them?
    No wonder this club still can’t compete at high level & major cup.

  19. PAUL says:

    Hmm not a bad thought having benzema in arsenal

  20. Solii says:

    Arsenal’s problem in my opinion is not a striker but defenders. A holding midfielder is till needed to take the place of Song Bilong. The sanchez move is enough for strikers .

  21. Asfaw Shalu says:

    That will be good if that happened.

  22. Yup says:

    Sanchez is at his best when he is playing just off a main striker. Keep in mind that he can and has played ST, CF, and RW all very well before (In fact, I would give him freedom to roam if I were Wenger and watch him destroy defenses). Does Arsenal need Benzema? No. There is better and younger talent out there. If Arsenal signs Casillas I will cry but it looks like they got Ospina. Arsenal I think needs to add a few more SMART signings to their supporting cast, probably in defense, a good cdm, and then maybe an up-in-coming, consistent main striker. There is currently a lot of talent in this Arsenal side but there is also too much room for inconsistency. A few quality signings could easily give arsenal a huge chance at winning the title this year, especially since they have already signed a steal, future top 10 player from Barca.
