The Israeli international was one of Arsenal’s best players on the pitch against Olympiakos recently and also brings a lot of experience to the team, although remain unables to push aside Ramsey or Arteta for regular spot.
Benayoun said on the situation:
I enjoy every moment in Arsenal but at the moment I can only concentrate on the year loan.
We will see at the end of the season. Arsenal have the option to take the rest of my contract with Chelsea, which is another two years.
But it is too early to speak about it. I need to play more and prove myself and maybe have the chance.
Personally I feel Benayoun is a decent player who would be more suited perhaps to his current role of impact player off the bench. The Israeli’s work-rate cannot be argued with and he brings good skill on attack. What do you guys think? Keep him or lose him?
