Karim Benzema Transfer: Man Utd Stance, Chelsea Interest and Arsenal snub

Former Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, who plays for Al Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League, is keen to return to Europe. Not only his past home team in the Bundesliga but Premier League clubs including Manchester United and Chelsea are in the race to acquire France international in the January transfer window.

Karim Benzema’s move in doubt

Lyon, Man United, and Real Madrid are keen on their own loan deal for signing Karim Benzema. However, Red Devils boss Erik Ten Hag clearly stated that Man United is looking for an experienced striker. Speaking to the press, He expressed his opinion clearly on what players he wants at the club.

The Dutchman said “If you want to perform, you need hungry players.

“I already said, we need personalities and players who are very hungry to fight for the badge, so fight for this club, and to do this in the team.”

But according to talkSport, Man United rejected the claims, that Benzema could move to Man United in this winter transfer window.

On the other side, Benzema rejected Al Ittihad’s offer because the loan fee was below expectations. Chelsea also jumped in this move. with Christopher Nkunku out and Nicolas Jackson in Afcon, The Blues are lacking in terms of goalscorers and they are ready to offer a loan deal to acquire a veteran striker.

As Brentford’s Ivan Toney is unlikely to join the club due to a high price tag, Arsenal could give preference to a loan striker. In our opinion, they should create an enterprising strategy to acquire Benzema.

The loan deal would be risk-free for Arsenal. However, this deal highly depends on Benzema’s acceptance.

Despite being 36 years old, He’s performing at best in the Saudi Pro League. Since he joined Al Ittihad last summer on a free transfer he has added 9 goals and 5 assists in 15 appearances.
