His signing instantly takes Arsenal to another level
Petr Cech has already been talked about as a game changing signing in regards to his point saving abilities but imagine if he was paired with an absolutely clinical world class striker this summer?
Olivier Giroud of course ended up with a respectable 19 goals in all competitions last season with only Alexis Sanchez usurping him with 25 strikes but considering Sergio Aguero won the Golden Boot with 26 Premier League strikes to his name, Arsenal need a striker of that next level who is on par with the Argentine in the goalscoring stakes.
Karim Benzema’s total La Liga goal haul for Real Madrid so far stands at 87 strikes in 188 games and the consensus is that he’d bag 20+ goals for Arsenal despite having never played in English football before.
Benzema has always been a clinical finisher so those cold Wednesday nights away at Stoke City would be unlikely to faze the Frenchman!
