Henry supports Arsenal move for Benzema

The former Gunners star feels that Arsene
Wenger is close to assembling a team who
could challenge at home and abroad and is
holding out hope for the Real Madrid striker to
arrive
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes that
landing Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema
would make his old side into serious title
contenders both in the Premier League and
Champions League.
Goal understands that the Gunners remain
hopeful of securing the French forward, a long-
term target for Arsene Wenger, despite
Madrid’s protestations that he will not be sold,
and are prepared to wait until late in the
transfer window.
Though Henry feels that Wenger’s men are not
far from doing something special, he feels that
they need more strength in depth up front
alongside Olivier Giroud and sees Benzema as
the ideal candidate.
“I always say it’s their year but there is a
genuine buzz around the place right now,” he
told talkSPORT.
“I think they can challenge this year for real if
they stay injury-free.
“Giroud alone as a striker there – you can’t win
the league, you need another type of striker.
“I think Giroud is doing really well – he went on
to score 14 goals in 18 games, that’s amazing –
but sometimes you need a different type of
striker and I think that, if they can get Benzema,
suddenly they are a real title contender and also
in the Champions League.”
