Is Karim a good enough finisher for us?
Pretty obvious today we need someone extremely clinical, we are either wasting clear chances or trying to walk it over the line. Maybe Lewandowski is a better fit.
Lewa would definitely be a better fit but he's very very unlikely to leave after 1 season. Cavani is probably a more lethal finisher than Benz but won't get involved in build up play or create for others as much as Benzema would.
Any of those 3 though are absolutely essential. I have faith we'll bring our man in.
Does it really matter? I'd take my grandma over Giroud atm. Just watching Giroud run makes me want to gouge my eyes out.
It would top off a terrible weekend for football if Man City signed Benzema.
Honestly, I don't think I can handle another season with Giroud as our first-choice striker, at least in a lone-striker role. Even the players look reluctant to react to his decisions. I'd take the instinct of Benzema without a pre-season with the team over this Giroud we have right now.
Elliot Richardson @ElliotR1971 28m28 minutes ago
Genuinely believe we will have a striker and that it's not Benzema.
Giroud looked better on the wing than as striker today. Crossing the ball in to where he should be is just painful to watch. Please let this be an eye opener for Wenger. We need a quality striker up front bare minimum (I also think we badly need a dm but that's for another thread)
Lol I've heard the words "I believe" so many times. Especially from Wenger.
Is Elliot Richardson someone who has inside knowledge or is he just a random fan?
Fan that know people inside the club.
He has good connections and doesn't BS according to GeoffArsenal. Personally haven't seen anything reliable - said we'd be signing Schneiderlin if I recall.
If not Benzema, then who?

Canal Plus reporters say Wenger has assured them Benzema wouldn't be coming to Arsenal. Could still be poker though.

Canal+ | Arsène has told Jean-luc Arribart that Karim Benzema will NOT be sold this summer.
Well then he better have another striker lined up otherwise we are well and truly ****ed.
Top 4 and fa cup it is.
Hopefully our reps are in Madrid for a DM or something.
Wenger on transfers...
"Again, I can only repeat what I already said. If an exceptional solution turns up, we’ll do it."
I'd prefer a small striker tbh just going by how we played today. With Walcott up top we seem to pass with a bit more purpose. With Giroud it's the usual pass, pass, passs.....cross...cleared.
The quality of strikers these days is pretty gash let's be honest. Benzema is more than good enough for us.
