Familiarity with Mesut Ozil

Benzema’s familiarity with Mesut Ozil could prove to be an incredible bonus for Arsenal. The hysteria surrounding Ozil’s arrival at Arsenal last summer was heightened by talk of his assist figures while in Spain, and it shouldn’t be ignored that Benzema was also the recipient of a lot of Ozil’s midfield play. Benzema is exactly the type of forward Ozil thrives on, while their understanding with one another should make for an easy transition for Benzema to English football.
