    No matter who it is, what Wenger does even if he signs messi some arsenal fan will be back here moaning two days later that we need a new midfielder. I despair

    • Player is a striker
    • He wants to come here
    • Selling club needs pursuading
    • Selling club want a 'superstar' to replace him

    Benzema, surely.

    No chap, I think the way to read it is 'not signing any old outfielder', he has his eyes set on something big. Özil/Sanchez/Cech big...Have faith

    I don't whether to be optimistic or annoyed after reading that article tbh! lol Saying we could go into the market and buy any player in the world, bar half a dozen.. Doubt that half a dozen includes Lewa and Benzema..? Get it done Arsène.


    "You’ve got to get the other team to want to sell him, but I think he wants to come. It basically comes down to whether the other team can find a superstar to replace him, because they don’t have to sell."

    It's Reus and Benzema..I knew it!

    Fits the bill. It's got to be him.

    He is basically saying the same thing Wenger said a couple of days ago: If we get the opportunity to buy an exceptional talent (obviously a striker) we will try to do it.

    Don't see why you guys are being so pessimistic. We've just learned from a legit source in the club that Wenger is indeed after a striker, and one that will likely require our transfer record to be broken to get. Can't say that's not ambitious.

    After the players we landed last two summers I think this news is extremely exciting.

    And if you don't get Benzema, then what? Sign no one and try again next summer? When a decent guy alongside Giroud probably gets you in a title chase.

    Yeah that does make the most sense. Buckle up for a prolonged saga.

    Judging by what this Harris said it looks like we will be bringing someone in this season though I definatly reserve the right to go mental if we don't.

    We know we'll sign Benzema if he's available, but what if he's not? Wait till next summer?

    Why would Harris give this interview now though? Madrid will just ask for more money, unless a price is agreed. :eek::eek:

    Well, hopefully we have a back-up option. Doubt that option is Lewa but hope there's someone else in the pipeline.

    There are many who wont accept that at some points Wenger deserves legitimate critisism for various descisions in the past.

    Any truth in the rumour that welbeck may be sold to Besiktas ? That Wenger didn't want him permently in the 1st place only on loan until a suitable giroud replacement became available

    I have no idea what will happen.

    My own sense is still that we're in for both a striker and a midfielder. Don't think any of these journos have the real scoop on what we're doing, they very rarely do until the deals are almost done. Problem as ever though, and as you know, is that Wenger won't compromise on the players. He'll have his shortlist and if they can't be had then he won't make a move.

    He's talking about Benzema though, and we've heard again today he wants to stay at Real.

    We seem to have two competing narratives emerging on that. This guy seems to suggest that they have reason to believe he does want to come, with the agent apparently saying he doesn't want to.

    We'll just have to wait and see.
