There are better options than Benzema for Arsenal by Galen
I am against Arsenal going after Benzema as it would depend on if Madrid get Aguero. Man City are no babies and can’t be bullied by Madrid. They have the finance available to make Aguero as rich as Messi. You don’t want a deal that will be happening on the 31st of August at Midnight. lets look at some options that we could get instead…..
Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli) (26 goals all competition) £40 million
El Pipita is 27 years of age and has been one of the most consistent strikers in the world in the last 8 years. you don’t start ahead of Aguero by being average! He is a very clinical finisher. With Benitez leaving he could be on the market. Napoli will be in the Europa League. He is my first option because he is world-class guaranteed. Gonzalo Pipita is not a gamble. When you pay peanuts you get monkeys. He is quality. Ask Ozil…..
Jacksone Martinez. (FC Porto) (32 goals all Competition) £24 million
They call him ChaCha and he suits the Premier league big time. He is 28 which is when strikers start to peak and has the physicality built for the league. The only disadvantage is that he is a little similar to Giroud even though a bit faster. He has no weakness
Lacazette (Lyon) (31 goals) £35 million
he is 23 and yet to be proven out of France or in Champions league, but the potential is there. He is very clinical and is completely different to Giroud. At the age of 23 his resale value could be incredible. Some people say he is the next Henry. I think he would be a wonderful capture.
Icardi (Inter Milan) (25 goals) £30 million
He is 21 and he was a wonderkid some years ago when Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal and Man United were in for him and Barca signed him. he is now at Inter and now he is making his name. He is the second highest goalscorer in the Italian league. He is very complete. Good in the air and good with his legs.
Paulo Dybala (Palermo) £25 million.
Oh sorry he is gone to juventus already for 40 million Euro which is about £25 million
Luciano Vietto (Villarreal) £20million. 20 goals all competitions
Watch this kid at the Emirates Cup. He plays for Villareal. Mark the name Vietto because you will hear so much about this name in the future. Another Argentine striker. he is very clinical and moves at the speed of light. Could we do a Campebell + cash swap deal???????
Benteke (Aston Villa) £30 million. 15 goals all competitions
he is very similar to giroud but with alot more pace. Good in the air and great with his feets. premier league experienced and he is a fan of arsenal football club.
I won’t mind any of these strikers but Benzema depends a lot on Benitez and on Madrid getting Aguero. So we need to be careful. Have fun scouting! My choice is Gonzalo Higuain because he is world-class and proven at the very top.
Who would you choose?
