JUST IN: Karim Benzema spotted at LONDON colney as He is set to undergo medical to sign 1yr deal with Arsenal today – announcement will be done in the next 24hrs.



Karim Benzema was recently observed at London Colney. Today, he is scheduled to undergo a medical examination in

preparation to sign a one-year contract with Arsenal; the announcement is expected within the next twenty-four hours.It is no secret that Arsenal requires a striker of the highest caliber; consequently, their Premier League title hopes may hinge on their capacity to acquire one.There have been rumors linking the Gunners with several candidates, including Victor Osimhen and Ivan Toney. However, Osimhen recently emphasized that he is not prepared to abandon Napoli, despite the fact that the Premier League is his ultimate goal.


In the interim, Toney has made no secret of his ambition to play for a premier club, and the Emirates appears to be an obvious destination for him. However, the attacker is anticipated to remain at the Gtech Community Stadium as an expression of gratitude to the Bees for their support during his recent return from a betting prohibition.


A further reason why a high-priced transfer for Toney at this time would be a gamble for Arsenal is that he has yet to accumulate minutes this season. As a result, Mikel Arteta may be compelled to adopt a provisional resolution.Regardless, Teamtalk asserts that Arsenal have allegedly discussed the possibility of acquiring Karim Benzema on loan. It is widely believed that the Frenchman is dissatisfied in Saudi Arabia subsequent to his transfer from Real Madrid to Al-Ittihad in the summer.


A number of European clubs have been linked with the Ballon d’Or recipient, and Arteta has reportedly discussed the possibility of loaning him in, according to the aforementioned report. Although not the only team considered, Chelsea is rumored to be considering making an approach as well.


“If Arsenal cannot afford to make a significant investment in January, then an approach for Benzema seems at least worth a discussion,” writes Notwithstanding the player’s extraordinary career, the transfer would still entail certain hazards.


“Benzema is currently 36 years old, and it is improbable that Al-Ittihad would grant him a loan without the Gunners absorbing a portion of his enormous salary. Furthermore, with no experience in the Premier League, the striker may consider relocating to a venue with a more assured record of winning trophies, considering his youth.


In the interim, BILD (via Sport Witness) reports that Arsenal could potentially enter the Xavi Simons transfer market this summer. The ace of Paris Saint-Germain is on loan at RB Leipzig after his buy-back clause was activated while he was with Dutch club PSV Eindhoven last year.


Barcelona are also interested in the 20-year-old, who has contributed to nine assists and six goals this season. However, at approximately £60 million, the winger could potentially exclude the cash-strapped La Liga champions from consideration.
