Last summer Arsenal attempted to prise Luis Suarez from Liverpool.
We would have to go as far as to say that if they had managed to do so they would be right up there in the title hunt – if not already champions.
Arsenal continue to be a team that dispatches the minnows with machine like efficiency but is unable to crack the elite in the crunch games.
Suarez is exactly the sort of big game player they require and you would imagine big bids will come in for him in the summer.
Benzema has been linked to Arsenal countless times in the last few years and the Arsenal manager is clearly a fan.
The French striker has done himself little harm during his time at Real Madrid scoring at almost a goal every other game (111 goals in 230 games).
But he isn’t as good as Bale or Ronaldo and Real Madrid may well look to get Suarez for the perfect front line next season.
The Daily Mail reports that Arsenal, along with Chelsea and Manchester United, will try to sign the player this summer.
While Benzema is a top player we think that he would be more suited to Arsenal than Manchester United or Chelsea.
While Jose Mourinho seems to prefer a powerful target man who can hold the ball up and throw his weight around, Manchester United already arguably have strikers who are as good or better than the Frenchman.
Arsenal’s velvety style seems to be a perfect fit for the elegant Frenchman who could definitely make a difference in the big games.
Let’s take a look at the lad in action. Arsenal fans – is he worth 40 million squid?
