With the January transfer window in full swing, Chelsea fans are bracing for potential surprises, especially in the striker positions and Karim Benzema has emerged as a possible option.

While Mauricio Pochettino remains active in the market, recent developments suggest talks surrounding a shock move for Karim Benzema are gaining traction.

Although Chelsea has seen loan deals and player recalls, the quest for a new striker has taken center stage. The injury to Christopher Nkunku has heightened the urgency for reinforcements. While Victor Osimhen and Ivan Toney have been recurrently linked to the Blues, a deal for either seems uncertain this month.

Amid this backdrop, the uncertainty surrounding Benzema’s future at Al-Ittihad has fueled speculation. The French striker, omitted from training sessions in Dubai after missing several the previous week, has raised eyebrows. With Jordan Henderson also potentially seeking a transfer away from Saudi Arabia, Chelsea has emerged as one of the options for the ex-Liverpool captain.

The prospect of Benzema donning Chelsea blue this month would undoubtedly be a seismic shock, given his recent move to the Middle East just six months ago.

However, Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly exploring short-term options for the seasoned striker, putting Chelsea in the mix.


With Nicolas Jackson set to miss weeks due to AFCON commitments and Nkunku nursing an injury, Armando Broja stands as the sole natural no.9 option for Pochettino.

The potential arrival of Benzema, with his undeniable quality, could be a coup for Stamford Bridge. Nevertheless, several factors complicate the scenario, including the risk of stunting the growth of the promising trio of Nkunku, Broja, and Jackson.

While Benzema’s absence from training has stirred speculation, a swift departure seems improbable. Although Manchester United is reportedly keenly interested, a move to the Premier League, coupled with Chelsea, is deemed nearly impossible.


As the transfer saga unfolds, Chelsea fans await the resolution of these intriguing developments on the striking front.
