Wenger back in for £27m striker

WTTGT Writer: Simon Bourne (Site Editor) – Follow Me

In the news today:

The Daily Mail appear convinced that Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas will seal a £34m move to Barcelona in the coming weeks. To counteract this, Wenger has supposedly reserved some of that income to make a substantial bid for Real Madrid forward, Karim Benzema, 24.

Sky Sports pundit, Guillem Balague revealed on Twitter a few weeks ago that Benzema had in fact told the club he wished to stay, however if Real do wish to sell the Frenchman, Arsenal could be the obvious destination.

The Daily Mail print today: ‘Benzema is the man Wenger wants to help Arsenal forget about the pending departures of their midfield duo [Nasri and Fabregas] and he is willing to smash the club’s transfer record to do it.

The Arsenal boss knows losing Fabregas and Nasri will have a detrimental effect on supporter morale, although he will make one last bid to keep Nasri with the offer of a £100,000-a-week contract.’

    Sell Cesc, keep Nasri and get Benzema. Then we only need Samba/Cahill and Cissokho. I guess that there would still be money for an experience DM to guide Song and Frimpong and maybe, just maybe we could ditch some deadwood on the way. Then Nasri is going to sign an extension and we showed everybody that no ones f*cks with Arsenal!

    i know this would be a stella signing but with gervinho on his way already surely a CB or a LB are top of list not more stikers… our problem last season was not scoring goals its was keeping the thing out of our net!!!! if we do sign benzema then we def need to ship out ''the worlds best striker'' LMAO B52… so then we have choice of RVP, gervinho, benzema, walcott, arshavin as our front three if we stay with 4-3-3 next season!?!? plz mr wenger plz get samba or cahill for CB and baines for LB and to think this could be our starting 11


    sagna Vermaelen samba/cahill baines

    benzema RVP gervinho

    regarding the article, thats just rumors…I believe it when i see it….
    But, what ever happened to our goalkeeper situation, all of a sudden its not so important anymore, though we still have the same keepers as last season…. I mean what happen if young Szency get injured again???? Whos gonna replace him… We need to sign not only defenders, but also a 1 top-class goal keeper, looks like everybody forgot about our #1 problem from last season….
