Arsenal is currently negotiating a transfer this month with Karim Benzema’s representatives and Al-Ittihad, a Saudi Arabian team.
Recently, there has been a lot of news about the Frenchman. It appears that he has decided to leave the Saudi Pro League, and Arsenal is now allegedly attempting to get him to move to the Emirates.
Karim Benzema and Arsenal are in talks to sign him.
Just previous summer, Karim Benzema moved from Real Madrid to Al-Ittihad.
The French sensation is one of the highest-paid players in Saudi Arabia and has been one of the top strikers in the world for the past ten years.
The Frenchman, who has scored 12 goals in just six months at Al-Ittihad, is searching for a way out, and Marca provides the most recent updates on the matter.
According to the Spanish publication, Benzema and the Saudi club’s executives have arranged a meeting for today in order to make a final decision regarding his future.
It has also emerged that many European clubs have shown interest in signing the Frenchman after he postponed his return to Al-Ittihad.
Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta has been suggested, as well as Manchester United and Lyon.
According to the source, the Gunners are discussing a transfer in the upcoming days with Al-Ittihad and Benzema’s representation.
At one point, Mesut Ozil likened Benzema to Brazilian Ronaldo.
For many years, one of Real Madrid’s top players was Karim Benzema.
Yes, superstars like Cristiano Ronaldo at the time frequently eclipsed his efforts, but his teammates were aware of his exceptional skill.
Mesut Ozil, who played alongside Benzema at Real Madrid before joining Arsenal, is one such player. He likened the Frenchman to the legendary Ronaldo of Brazil.
“I know him as a person, he’s a really, really good person,” he said in 2020 on Arsenal’s YouTube page. I had a great time playing with him throughout that time.
“I am aware that he is among the top strikers. He resembles the Brazilian Ronaldo, to put it mildly. In front of the goal, he is really skilled with the ball.
