Latest Updates on Karim Benzema’s Potential Move to Chelsea After Being Snubbed by Arsenal and Man Utd

Karim Benzema has been linked with a move to Chelsea, as reports indicate he may be ending his six-month stint in Saudi Arabia with Al-Ittihad. The 36-year-old, who joined Al-Ittihad in July after leaving Real Madrid, has scored 12 goals in 20 games for the club. Chelsea is reportedly the frontrunner to sign Benzema, with discussions happening internally within the Blues. The potential transfer will hinge on how Benzema’s current team, Al-Ittihad, is compensated by Lyon, should the deal materialize.

On the other hand, Arsenal has been identified as needing a proven goalscorer, as they have struggled in the final third in recent matches. The Gunners were offered the opportunity to sign Benzema earlier this month, but they are in dire need of bolstering their attacking prowess. Meanwhile, Manchester United has declined talks regarding a move for Benzema, citing the exorbitant financial demands, despite his availability and quality as a player.

Benzema’s situation at Al-Ittihad has drawn interest from various clubs, including Chelsea and Arsenal. However, the player has stated that reports of him seeking to leave Al-Ittihad are false, dismissing the speculation as baseless and exaggerated in the French media.
