The problem that the Arsenal boss has in his transfer pursuit of the French international striker Karim Benzema, is that he might not know for sure whether Real Madrid will sell or of the player will want to join Arsenal, until the last few days of the transfer window.

So if the Benzema deal does fall through it will leave the Gunners boss with next to no time to try to boost his front line somewhere else. And after the Gunners were rocked by an opening day defeat at home to West Ham, maybe Wenger realises that he just cannot afford to wait and see.

So according to a Metro report, Wenger could now be set to challenge the Italian champions Juventus for the transfer of the long term Arsenal target Julian Draxler of Schalke. I would love this signing to happen. How about you lot?

  1. Sorry I don’t believe this transfer will happen for one
    moment as Benzema has snubbed us several times in the past and I can’t see him joining us now…

    We need a striker badly but according to his nibs we don’t.

    For gawd sakes open that tight purse Arsene and spend some cash on quality so that we can all get a good nights sleep
    during the season…
