Number three, the French International was touted for massive things when he left Lyon for Real Madrid, but it is safe to say he has failed to impress over the last year or so.
Perhaps a move away from the Bernabeu is just what Benzema needs, with the youngsters Morata and Jese proving to be better options than Benzema at the moment.
Another French player for Arsenal which could prove to be an excellent purchase, he does have the ability to succeed and there is no doubt Arsene Wenger could potentially get the best out of him.
But would Karim Benzema sit on the bench, waiting for his French teammate to get injured?
He would still prove to be a valuable asset, and would not cost as much as Real Madrid paid for him in the summer of 2009.
