Chelsea trying to sign world-class striker from Saudi Arabia
Chelsea are considering a loan move for Karim Benzema this January, according to a new report.
The Telegraph claims that the Blues want to ease the pressure on Mauricio Pochettino by bringing the Frenchman to Stamford Bridge before the end of the winter transfer window.
Benzema hasn’t gotten along with the management of Al-Ittihad since he joined the Saudi club last summer, and his future remains unclear at the moment.
The outlet also claims that Chelsea could go for former Liverpool striker, Roberto Firmino as an alternative.
Firmino has struggled to play regularly for Al-Ahli since he joined them last year.
