[VIDEO] Evidence Why Benzema Is Worth £25m Arsene!

By on June 9, 2011

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema but reports are suggesting Arsene Wenger is reluctant to meet his £25m valuation. Well here is a video of all Benzema’s 26 goals in the 2010/11 season, maybe this will convince Wenger to get his chequebook out!

    We have always had a 25 goal a season striker from Wright to Anelka to Henry and mixed that in with number 10’s, wingers and wing forwards some of whom would often chip in with 15 a season each. Despite RVP being world class and his goal scoring stats being excellent we still need a proven top class 25 a season striker. They cost money. The 2 best options would be Benzema or Falcao and both would likely cost £25m. You might get Gervinho for £15m who I believe is currently more a winger/wing forward, as Henry was, but I don’t think at this stage we need another winger to striker conversion experiment. It may not work as well a second time as it did with Thierry and we can’t afford any bedding in period in this, what I consider critical, coming season while that player adapts to the new role. We need a player who is already a proven predator and barring injury will guarantee you that goal return. For the record I like the look of Gervinho and if the Nasri situation can’t be resolved I would sell him and get both Gervinho and Benzema. We may even be able to get a Nasri and Benzema swap deal going with Madrid. I would give Theo his wish and have him and Benzema considered our main strikers next year with Chamackh as back up and move RVP into the slightly deeper role with Gervinho and Arshavin also competing for the other slot in our 4-3-3 system.

    To be more sincere to each other i dnt see wat Gervinho is playin is more or less like Solomon Kalou they are one way traffic i dnt see him as a replacement for anybody in team but i pray dat Benzema wil sign cos Jose formation nxt season wil xclud him come at d end of d transfer window.

    I don’t think it is the money as such, because from seemingly reliable sources Wenger is supposed to have been willing to buy-out Falcao’s contract at £26m , i think it is basically down to Mourinho not wanting to let go of him and him wanting to stay at Real because Wenger has been a fan of his for a long time and wants him at the Emirates but what can he do if Real doesn’t wanna sell…………………i would Love him to be at Arsenal i think we would DESTROY teams with RVP in partnership with him.

    i do hate articles like this. i doubt anybody thinks Benzema isn’t worth 25mil but he wants to stay at Real and Real have no need to sell him especially for 10mil lower then they bought him for. its articles like this that cloud the truth and make arsen seem sooooo reluctant to spend.

    when he finds a player that wants to come to arsenal and is the type of player we need he will buy them if a player dosent want to come or the club dont want to sell the player believe it or not we wont get them.
    -Cahill
    -Jagelka
    -Jones
    -Melo
    -Bale
    we didnt get these players because they either didnt want to come or the club didnt want to sell.

    Did Wenger say he won’t splash 25 mil on Benzema? Most posts above me have correctly pointed out that the clubs don’t want to lose their stars adding to that Real bought him for 35 mil euros (thats roughly 31 mil pounds, just making it plain for lesser minds like yourself) and he has 4 years left on his existing contract, so why would they want to sell a “super star” for a 6 mil loss when they have the leverage as of now? If you want to be a part of a bandwagon get your ass elsewhere!

    Benzema is not worth 25m pounds. All the goals scored, none against main rival,Barca. Why Mourinho still loan Adebayor from Man C? Van Persie is much better than him(best goal against Barca).
