Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has urged Arsene Wenger to sign reported target Karim Benzema, with the Real Madrid forward heavily linked with us over the past few weeks.

Benzema, according to Spanish outlet El Confidencial, hasn’t ruled out a move to us, and after speaking to Wenger he is waiting to see if he’s central to Rafael Benitez’s plans.
Piers, who is vocal about his issues with the manager, is adamant that Benzema is the player we need, with our squad nearing completion following years of undergoing a rebuilding process.
Wenger seems to have successfully replaced all the players he previously aimed to build a team around, apart from Robin van Persie.
Olivier Giroud has done an admirable job in the past few years, but the fact that he’s yet to reach the 20-goal mark in the Premier League speaks volumes.

Benzema is of the calibre that he could easily reach that tally, with his finishing ability among some of the best in Europe. Crucially, the 27-year-old is also able to fashion a chance on his own, such is his sensational technical ability.
If Wenger pulls off the Benzema deal, our fortunes may well drastically transform over the next few years.
