Karim Benzema has been linked to a move to Manchester United and Chelsea. The French striker made the move to Al-Ittihad in the summer. The former Real Madrid player signed a contract with the Saudi Arabian club for two and a half years. He seems interested in going to the Premier League, but his contract wages could be seen as an issue.

A similar situation is occurring with Roberto Firmino, who signed with Ah Ahli just six months ago. After losing his starting position, the Brazilian is looking for a loan move out of the club. The player has been coming off the bench for the past few games. He was also linked to a move to Chelsea but for a six-month loan deal. He is interested in taking a pay cut to make the move happen.

Former Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson also joined the Saudi league in the summer but is looking for a permanent move away. He moved to Al-Ettifaq for 12 million euros, but the English midfielder is looking to terminate his contract, which could cost him millions. Henderson is desperate to return to Europe and even offered himself to clubs.
