Arsenal | Arsene Wenger | Karim Benzema
With a midfield bursting at the seams with creative talent, and a defence which was consistently sturdy last season - albeit crumbling against the best teams - there remains one area of the pitch that Arsene Wenger needs to dramatically improve; upfront.
Olivier Giroud puts the hours in and is a useful asset when it comes to his link up play with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere, but he simply isn’t prolific enough when it matters to be credited as being one of the Premier League’s best strikers. Enter Karim Benzema.
The France international has a proven track record at the highest level and his reputation alone is enough to put the scare into most back-lines. What’s more, he’s French. What’s not to like from Wenger’s point of view?
