He is exactly what arsenal need, a good striker to pair up with van persie.

Yeah but Benzema needed Jose on his ass about his attitude to get the best out of him, Do you think Wenger will do the same?

Wenger is a World Class coach of course he can do it, but will he spend 40ml on a single striker and not buy any defenders or midfielder to strengthen the weak link of his team?

Wenger would never spend 40 million on a player I think the past has proved that. Its the reason Arsenal have won FA for over 6 years now and will continue to win FA while he's in charge.

... so why waste 40 million bucks on Benzema, when Arsenal strongly need improvements in other positions!?

I really can't see it happening. I'm certainly not ruling out Arsenal buying another striker or winger, but not for 40 million pounds.

CaughtOffside at it again, I see. What's next? "Blackpool tempting Barca with £200m for Messi"?

Benzema need a new club where he can play more. Arsenal could be a good choice.
