Arsenal eye loan move for Karim Benzema

Arsenal are reportedly mulling over a move that would see them take Karim Benzema on a short-term loan agreement.

The Gunners remain in the title race this term but a lack of goals from their forwards has seen their form dip in recent weeks. But signing a world-class striker like Benzema would surely solve that issue. Back Arsenal to win the Premier League at 4/1 with bet365.

Karim Benzema to Arsenal

It is claimed in the report that the Gunners are eager to add more firepower to their ranks during the January transfer window.

And Mikel Arteta could line up a stunning move for former France international Benzema to fix this issue.

In terms of the competition Arsenal may face for the hitman’s signature, Manchester United have been linked with Benzema, although an approach there is considered to be unlikely, while Chelsea are another side that remain in the hunt for a proven No.9.

Should Benzema sign, it would likely see Eddie Nketiah’s minutes reduced a fair bit, unless Gabriel Jesus continues to suffer with knee issues.
