Could Arsenal French connection get Benzema from Real Madrid?

Every week it seems like Arsenal are linked with another transfer target and it will continue from now until the start of next season. Many of the rumours are focused on strikers, with Stevan Jovetic, David Villa and Alvaro Negredo just three of the many names connected with a possible move to the Emirates.

Knowing Arsene Wenger, though, the new Gunners who arrive in the summer could well be completely different than the players whose names are in the media. Arsenal fans are hoping for a big name, a striker with proven quality, and the one who springs to my mind is Karim Benzema.

Barcelona’s Puyol injury may give Arsenal’s Cazorla start for Spain

Santi Cazorla has been outstanding for Arsenal since moving from La Liga side Malaga in the summer. His name was unfamiliar to many people in this country and their is a common assumption that he is struggling to get a place in the Spanish national side. Cazorla may get a rare start this week as Spain travel to Belarus for the first of two World Cup qualifiers, the second being against France.

Spain are blessed with lots of talented midfielders, many of whom have similar playing styles, such as Iniesta, Fabregas, Silva and Xavi. Cazorla could get the nod, however, with his Arsenal performances drawing interest all over the world. Cazorla has already got 48 caps for Spain and two European championship winner’s medals.
