Spanish giants Real Madrid are adamant to keep the Frenchman in Santiago Bernabeue, but that hasn’t stopped rumor mills to stop spilling Benzema transfer speculations.
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has tipped Gunners that his countryman Karim Benzema will be Arsenal’s ticket to Premier League title, if Wenger succeeds in acquiring his signature. Wenger is reportedly targeting a star striker before the transfer window slams shut on September 1st and reports suggest that Real Madrid star forward tops his shopping list.
Speaking to English media, Henry said:
“I always say it’s their year but there is a genuine buzz around the place right now.
“I think they can challenge this year for real if they stay injury-free.
“Giroud alone as a striker there – you can’t win the league, you need another type of striker. I think Giroud is doing really well – he went on to score 14 goals in 18 games, that’s amazing.
“But sometimes you need a different type of striker and I think that if they can get Benzema, suddenly they are a real title contender and also in the Champions League.”
