Lukas Podolski has finally been officially announced as a Gunner. We knew this ages ago, the only thing that held the announcement back were the problems that were being experienced at his former club FC Koln.
We had an early start adding value and depth to our squad, which is great to see. The question now is, who do we go for next?
I have a simple and straight forward answer to this question, and we don’t even have to look far – Yossi Benayoun.
The on loan Israeli has been brilliant for us when he has featured. He’s experienced, has great technical ability, is highly creative and a superb team player. Benayoun has shown interest in playing for us in recent weeks, so why not sign him permanently when the season is up? Chelsea don’t look like they really need him, as they have an overload of midfielders amongst their squad.
To put it simply, Yossi is a brilliant player and one we can not let pass us by, especially after seeing what he can bring to the table first hand this season.
If we sign him then maybe we can go for Eden Hazard and the rest of those high-profile players everyone keeps yapping on about.
But having seasoned heads in the squad certainly won’t hurt us, especially when they are playing well and can offer something to the side like Yossi Benayoun does.
With the experience from the ‘older players’ and the flair from the younger ones, I believe we will be and look even more dangerous next campaign, which of course will mean that we will finally get our hands on some silverware next season.
Do you agree? Should Yossi Benayoun be our next summer signing, or is there another player we should be concentrating on?
