watching Adebayor go off for a year has me wary of one year scoring efforts, though Benteke offers more than that. I know you hate the OG but I think he'll be better this year. wouldn't be displeased if we got him, just guessing why we wouldn't pursue him. if we didn't think he was worth it last year for 7m or whatever it was, not sure his year last year, regardless of how impressive it was, would cause stubborn AW to more than triple his valuation.
I do think Benteke has the bottle to play at Arsenal though.
