Arsenal to target Benzema since he is unhappy at Al-Ittihad

The recent links between Arsenal and Karim Benzema evoke a sense of nostalgia. That is reminiscent of the early 2010s when the Gunners were previously in association with the French striker. Now, a decade later, the North London club finds itself once again connected to Benzema.

Arsenal is in need of a prolific striker, and Benzema fits the bill. The Gunners are reportedly showing interest, and there are indications that the Frenchman might be on the verge of departure.

Fabrizio Romano, on the Men in Blazers Podcast, provided an update on Benzema’s situation. That is revealing the striker’s discontent at Al-Ittihad. Romano mentioned that Benzema is currently training alone. Thus, giving Arsenal an opportunity to look at his situation.

A situation like this often marks the end of a player’s tenure at a club, and it appears that Benzema has fallen out with Al-Ittihad. Such circumstances typically indicate a difficult return for the player to the club.

What did Romano say about Arsenal interest Benzema?

Romano stated: “Karim returned to training with Al-Ittihad, he’s regularly training now with the squad but not with the rest of the group, he’s training by himself I am told, he’s training alone, it is a very tense situation between Benzema, people at the club, the manager, they are not happy at all with the current situation.”

Whether Arsenal pursues Benzema remains uncertain, but it’s evident that the player himself requires a move before the January window closes.

The Benzema situation is worth monitoring closely until deadline day, given his apparent dissatisfaction and unhappiness at the moment. Whether Arsenal will contemplate a move is still under observation.
