Potential consequences of Arsenal signing Benrahma

Potential consequences of Arsenal signing Benrahma

Arsenal managed to secure a thumping victory against Bournemouth at the Emirates yesterday, which helped them retain their place in the top four. 

The Gunners will have their sights set on a Champions League spot for next season as things just aren’t the same in the Europa League, so consistency will be key from here on in.

Interestingly, it appears as if the North London club are eyeing a possible swoop, as according to Le Buteur (via HITC), Arsenal are interested in signing Brentford’s Said Benrahma.

Of course, bringing an exciting talent like Benrahma to the Emirates would certainly have its benefits, but it could also have a negative affect on players already at the club, so here are the potential consequences of signing him…

UNAI EMERY SECURES PERFECT OZIL PARTNER

Mesut Ozil has been one of the shining lights for the Gunners in recent times as he continues to aid their rise under Unai Emery. He bagged himself a goal and an assist against Bournemouth last night in the Premier League.

Unai Emery has opted to go with two attacking midfielders at times this season and adopted that approach last night, which would be sure to benefit Benrahma as he loves to float around in attacking areas.

The Algerian would be the perfect partner for Ozil as he’d add more of an attacking balance, as well as giving the German another option in the final third. Indeed, he loves to get forward and play quick passes in the final third, as well as dragging defenders in with his incredible skill, which would create space for Ozil to operate in.

ALEX IWOBI ANNOYED

Alex Iwobi had to settle for a place on the substitutes’ bench last time out against Bournemouth as Emery opted to go with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

It’s safe to say that Benrahma’s potential arrival could annoy the Nigeria international, despite him being a regular in the current campaign, as Emery may opt to go with Benrahma and Ozil as his attacking pair due to the incredible amount of goals and assists that the Algerian has managed to produce this season.
