There has been so many rumours regarding the possible signing of Benzema for ARSENAL – and although he would be better than what the club have right now – it would just be a waste of money.

He is not a long-term signing – he is not a man that can score 20-30 goals a season anymore, that is why Madrid allowed him to depart the club, so it would not really make any sense from the board to actually get a deal done.

And with the financial fair play rules – all clubs have to be careful and that is why they are not spending the big money


Gabby Agbonlahor believes Brentford striker Ivan Toney would jump at the opportunity to join Arsenal.

Toney is nearing a return to action following a 10-month ban from football with Arsenal and Chelsea both reportedly keen to try and get a deal done when the transfer window opens up in just a few weeks time.

ARSENAL may be sitting top of the Premier League right now – but there is a feeling that the club need to delve into that transfer kitty once more and add a striker to the attack that has the ability to score goals on a weekly basis.

Toney is seen as one of the best forwards in the Premier League and a player that is ready to take that next step in his career, and if you believe the words of Agbonlahor – would jump at the chance to join Arsenal.

He told talkSPORT: “Let’s be honest here, if Toney got an offer now from Arsenal to come, he doesn’t care about Brentford and staying there until the end of the season. Let’s be honest.

“He’s said it so many times in interviews. A big club will come and get me when it’s right.”

Ivan Toney is the man that everyone wants to see make that move to the Emirates, it could be the perfect step up for the man to test himself at the highest level of the game,

However, we just cannot see him making that move to ARSENAL this transfer window, Brentford dont want to lose their best player and only big money will get a deal done.


Arsenal are still pushing for Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz, according to reports.

The midfielder has been one of Unai Emery’s unsung heroes this term, scoring seven goals and contributing seven assists in all competitions.

Will Luiz leave Villa?

While 14-goal striker Ollie Watkins has captured the headlines, Luiz has played a key role in Villa’s success in the Premier League this term, with the club sitting in third position and two points behind league leaders Liverpool.

Luiz was heavily linked with a move to ARSENAL last year and according to many reports in the media over the past few months, he is still a player that Mikel Arteta would love to add to his squad.

Football Insider claim the Gunners are working hard behind the scenes to sign the Brazilian, but his club Aston Villa are in no rush to sell their talisman who signed a new contract last season.

amid all that speculation and rumours – Man United legend Roy Keane says there is no surprise that Arsenal are interested in the star given the level of performance that he’s putting in.

“He turns up every week this player,” said Keane. “Never seems to be injured. Quality player. I like him.

“I think he was linked with Arsenal last year. There are no surprises there, with some of the Villa players, you think they can certainly go on to play for a Man United, Arsenal or even Man City, you look at Watkins.


“But I like Luiz. He is consistent. Turns up week in and week out. You know what you are going to get from him. I like a lot about him. Probably lacks that real pace maybe.

“In terms of his decision-making and looking after the ball. Very, very good.”

Douglas is playing the best football of his career and to be honest – it would take something special to get him away from Villa right now – as he is very happy at the club.
