Meh.

Real can keep their Karim. We've got our own KEN. We will smash Real when we meet them in the UCL. I can see us going all the way this season.

A well-rounded and selfless forward, happy to create spaces and drag defenders away to create additional space for CR7 & co. His tendency to be erratic in front of goal suggests he would struggle elsewhere as ''the main man'' - his rather underwhelming performances for Les Bleus epitomise the likelihood of that scenario further. One of the better supporting strikers of the last decade, though.

Wouldn't want him here, that boat has sailed now, he'd be almost 30 and I think for a striker ideally you want to get them in their mid 20s so you can get the most out of them.

We're better off with Lacazette going forward.

This sh*t again.

https://www.express.co.uk/sport/footbal ... ers-Wenger

Apparently we've inquired with a £35m bid, obviously Madrid are peeved but worried that their man has in reality lost his value with his crap form.

I just don't know why the hell we would want a striker in worse form than our own two, unless we plan to go 2 up top, why would we want 3 strikers who all think they should start.

Neither Lacazette or Benzema will accept being a bench warmer and that's not even mentioning Giroud who's whining about poss leaving unless Wenger rubs his shoulders again.

Eh, it's true that his golden age is over, but hey, he's still far from useless on the pitch.

Lots of chatter about this one. Wonder what’s up there? Suppose he’d be a Giroud or Welbeck replacement.

This would be a sad transfer if it happens.

He is over the hill and will not even get us in top 4 anymore.

We are 5 years late on this one if true.

What would be even sadder is that he comes here and Auba goes to RM because we didn't want to pay 5-10m extra.

NO to Benzema, the same player who laughed to our face countless times when he was in his prime, now he is on a steady decline and probably having nothing to offer (if this season is anything to go by) would be willing to join...Arsenal shouldn't be a dump ground for rejects...get us some good ol" on fire striker...PEA

We sign pea, giroud goes to dortmund, we sign benzema to replace og. I’d be happy with that!

More likely real sign auba and we get benzema. The reason waiting til deadline day for auba was a daft idea.
