Karim Benzema has addressed the speculations surrounding his alleged request to leave Saudi Arabia, which emerged amidst the rumors of a potential move to Arsenal.


The departure of Jordan Henderson from Saudi Arabia to Ajax seems to have triggered the interest of the London-based club, leading to the speculation surrounding Benzema’s future.


It remains to be seen whether Benzema will be among the players who will follow Henderson’s footsteps and make a return to Europe from the Middle East.


Benzema’s recent club troubles arose when he postponed his return from a break, sparking rumors about a possible comeback to Europe.


Numerous sources indicate that the French player is keen on leaving for the rest of the season, and Arsenal has emerged as a potential destination for him.


Given Arsenal’s requirement for a striker and Benzema’s reputation as one of the top players globally, it is logical to consider a potential move to London.


Nevertheless, the striker has refuted the rumors suggesting that he requested to depart from Al-Ittihad and conveyed to L’Equipe:


“That’s absolutely untrue! The French media seems to be running out of ideas. The more sensational, the better.”


Benzema is an internationally acclaimed forward and his inclusion in our team would undoubtedly enhance our squad.


Nonetheless, it appears unlikely for him to switch clubs during this month, and therefore, we must divert our attention towards alternative strategies at present.


In all likelihood, we will rely on our existing options for the remainder of the season, hence they require our unwavering support in the upcoming months.
