Free of any commitment after having terminated his contract with Qatar SC, Djamel Benlamri would be close to a return to the Saudi league. An Algerian club would be interested in the services of the Algerian international defender.
According to Arab media, the Saudi club Al-Shabab would be interested in the idea of recovering Djamel Benlamri and intends to establish contact with him soon. But the possibility of seeing him make his comeback with the Saudi club is far from possible because of the way he left in 2020, to join Olympique Lyonnais. The Saudis had filed a complaint with Fifa against the player and the latter was ordered to pay a sum of $ 1.2 million for his ex-club.
Note that the Algerian international defender has not yet paid this sum on behalf of Al-Shabab. In this case, he could return to better arrangements and try to find common ground with Saudi officials to “pay off his debt”.
Despite a career far from expectations with Qatar SC, and a contract termination before the end of the current season, Djamel Benlamri still arouses envy. Still according to the Arab media, he is coveted by several Saudi clubs, citing in particular Al-Nasr and Al-Ahly.
The photo that ignited the web
Free of any commitment after terminating his contract with Qatar SC, Djamel Benlamri is now master of his destiny. He can negotiate with all the clubs that have requested him. But as of press time, he hasn’t decided on his future destination. One thing is certain, he will play in an Arab championship next season.
In the last hours, a photo between the president of the JSK Yazid Yarichène and Djamel Benlamri was swung through social networks. The least we can say is that the photo ignited the web, but above all opened the doors to speculation as to a possible return of the international defender to the flagship club of Kabylia, which has already worn his jersey between 2012 and 2014 , and this, from the next summer transfer window.
If some people believe in Benlamri’s return to JSK, it’s simply because the president of the Yarichène club is ready to spend money to make a big recruitment during the next transfer period, he who hasn’t skimped on resources since taking over the club about a year ago.
