Chelsea Considers Contracting with Karim Benzema


Chelsea Football Club is reportedly considering the possibility of acquiring the services of French striker Karim Benzema from Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad during the ongoing winter transfer window, according to a press report today, Monday.

Benzema joined "Al-Ameed" in July of last year, moving from the ranks of the Spanish club Real Madrid, and is currently under contract with them until 2026.

According to the British newspaper "Daily Mail," Chelsea is actively exploring the option of signing a striker during the current winter transfer period to address their lack of goal-scoring prowess in the current season.

The newspaper explains that Chelsea is evaluating the possibility of bringing in either Karim Benzema or Roberto Firmino in January, emphasizing that one of them may join the English team on loan until the end of the current season.

It is worth noting that Benzema has participated in 24 matches with Al-Ittihad since joining, scoring 15 goals, while Firmino has played 19 matches with Al Ahli Jeddah, scoring 3 goals and providing as many assists.
