He is a great player, from the little I have seen of him! Certainly worth a look at, but he'd not come cheap! Also, we've not exactly been blessed with great attacking French players. I'd like to think Benzema, Aguerro, or Huntelaar are possible options for us in the future

I truly believe he will be the next big thing as far as centre-forwards go. I would absolutely love to see him in blue and he is exactly the type of player we need. He won't come cheap, though. I won't be surprised at a fee of around 30-35 mln pounds.

Good shout Butch, but think Benzema could be worth the effort. Essien turned out pretty good

Benzema would definately be worth the effort. There are only two problems:

1. He's off to Spain: link

2. We're not made of money anymore. We won't be spending big again for a long time, if ever. In better economic time Benzema would have gone close to getting a world record fee. He won't go for that much now, but whatever it is will be more than we can currently afford.

I saw a good Soccernet article the other day with some post game quotes from Mr. Benzema. Seems to be talking openly about a move to a bigger league/team

This guy may be the deadliest attacker in Europe for the next 5 years. I think we'd be crazy not to at least get in the mix. Lyon and Aulas be damned.
