With his transfer decision, Karim Benzema puts Chelsea and Arsenal back on notice.

Karim Benzema has informed Al Ittihad that he wants to leave the team this month, putting Premier League teams Arsenal and Chelsea back on notice.

The seasoned striker has stated his wish to go on loan before the January transfer window closes because his move to the Saudi Pro League has soured.

 

According to AFP, who quotes a person close to the player, he was given the option to transfer to a different Saudi Arabian team.

 

Benezema vehemently denied that option and told his current employers in a ‘bad-tempered’ meeting that ‘he doesn’t feel he is able to give his best because of the current pressure At Ittihad.’

Due to the 36-year-old’sdesireto leave, several Premier League teams—all of whom are in desperate need of a new center forward—will undoubtedly express renewed interest.

 

After defeating Crystal Palace 5-0 on Saturday, Arsenal found their shooting form again. Despite Mikel Arteta’s strong desire to add a forward, the Gunners have little money to spend this month.

 

Earlier this month, the North London club was given the opportunity to sign a player in the 2022 Ballon d’Or window, but they are now considering the possibility of signing a versatile defender.

 

Takehiro Tomiyasu is currently serving for his country, so Arteta feels he is lacking in defense while Jurrien Timber recovers from a serious knee injury.

Christopher Nkunku will not be available for Chelsea’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Middlesbrough tonight.

 

The Blues will need to overcome a 1-0 first-leg deficit without the services of Nicolas Jackson, their high-profile summer acquisition, who is still serving with Senegal at the AFCON.

 

Manchester United, on the other hand, is unlikely to make any moves during the transfer window despite their own ongoing goal drought this year.

But according to former United striker Andy Cole, his former team ought to go above and beyond to sign the legendary Real Madrid player.

Cole said to Bet Fred, “150%.”

If it was just for a training session, I would sign him. When he left Real Madrid in the summer, I was shocked.

“He is earning generational wealth in Saudi Arabia.” It’s for his children and their children. I can see why he moved to Saudi Arabia when, at that point in his career, he had already won four La Liga titles, five Champions League trophies, and the Ballon d’Or.

 

At his age, could he succeed in the Premier League? 100% in light of the way he takes care of himself. Manchester United ought to make every effort to sign him if they have the chance to do so.
