Inter are on the way up and they won't sell Icardi. We should try Lewadowski. I want him for so long now, he's the closest typical center forward to what RVP was during his peak. He'll surpass him in a year or two as well.

If we can land Lewa wonderful if we can't, I don't mind Michy Batshuayi, Belgian is a beast.

I remember some wankers saying that Benzema is better than Lewandowski

What Lewandowski has done in the last two weeks isn't exactly reflective of Lewandowski's career as a whole. Fickle fans have a very short memory span. Benzema has been an important cog at Real Madrid for years, helping them to win a handful of trophies, including a Champions League.

So yes, I'd still take Benzema over Lewandowski at Arsenal. I think Benzema would fit better.

I would have taken Dortmund's Lewandowski over Benzema. Over any striker tbf apart from Suarez. He's the type of player I admire. Typical center forward with physical presence, height and also brilliant technique on the ball. Can sprint as well. He's basically a RVP without those injured years.

I miss van Persie

Not gonna lie I probably would've taken him back after United wanted rid.

Benzema is just a tiny little bit better than Giroud. Just has a bit more pace and dribbling. Benzema's finishing is about the same as Giroud's.

I cant believe anyone will want RVC back in the club, if not from emotional stand point, but from football perspective. He was finished after the first half year under Fergi. He didnt lasted even one year.

For me, we need one multi roll player in the midfield or attack. Both position cover with such player would be nice but at least one in January will help. Nacho and Paulista were great two january signings in last 3 transfers, lets hope Arsenal have someone similar targeted.

I think we would be targeting another midfielder since Jack is perennially crocked and we are over-relying on Alexis. Wenger does not seem to trust Joel and he in the team because he could find a club and we could find a replacement. I seriously hope he gets to play few games on a trot and show what he can offer.

but so was Le Coq! He needs to be give a chance before he is written off.

It's much easier to be a terrier-type DM than a winger. We have Alexis, Theo, Welbz, Ox, Ramsey who all play out wide and are better than him. Whereas we only had Flamini and Arteta who could play DM also.

No position is easy, Which one of these players is a winger and a back to Alexis?

LW: Alexis, Welbeck, Ox, Cazorla, Özil, Joel RW: Ramsey, Ox, Theo, Özil, Joel

Is probably the pecking order. And with Theo up front keeping Joel is a necessity in numbers, not in quality.

Arteta can NOT play DM role. He can't play any role in this team any more... Flamini is a big risk playing. We urgently need a back up for Le Coq, who is not unbreakable... I personally like Joel, but he is not suitable for the speed style we play lately, which is the style we must be playing !!! The OX is way better alternative, in cases even better than Ramsey... And we should pray, Theo, Ozil or Alexis don't get injured
