In light of the fact that Chelsea is having difficulty scoring goals in the current season, it has been claimed that the club is contemplating making loan moves for Karim Benzema and Roberto Firmino, who was formerly a forward for Liverpool. Due to the fact that the Blues have been having trouble reaching the back of the net, the club has been looking into different attacking possibilities. Christopher Nkunku suffered a hip injury not too long ago.
Although Victor Osimhen, a striker for Napoli, continues to be a top target for a new striker signing in 2024, it is possible that financial concerns will make the Nigerian international player too expensive to sign this month. As a consequence of this, Chelsea is looking into other possibilities, and recent sources indicate that both Benzema and Firmino might be possible targets for the club.
According to The Telegraph, Chelsea is reportedly considering a move to Saudi Arabia, where both Benzema and Firmino have been said to be considering a return to Europe. According to reports from Marca, Benzema, who joined Al Ittihad this summer, has not returned to training after being granted time off. Additionally, Benzema was granted time off. After that, the manager, Marcelo Gallardo, decided not to include him in the first-team squad. It is unclear what the future holds for Benzema with Al Ittihad, despite the fact that he has scored 12 goals in making 20 appearances for the Saudi club.
It has also been reported that Firmino, a former striker for Liverpool, is exploring the possibility of returning to European football. During the current season, Chelsea is eager to address scoring concerns and improve their attacking options, and their interest in these loan deals underlines the urgency with which they see these matters.
