On the off chance that some person requested that you name a player who is keeping pace with Lionel Messi as far as natural ability, the larger part would struggle to reply, yet not Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.

The 29-year-old has proposed that one of his international team-mates has an equal measure of ability from five-time Ballon d’Or victor Messi in a somewhat astounding meeting.

In spite of not beginning an amusement for his club this season, Paris Saint-Germain winger Hatem Ben Arfa is on Lionel Messi’s level, as indicated by Karim Benzema.

Karim Benzema names Ben Arfa as talented as Messi

Ben Arfa, who has just started 13 times since his turn to PSG in 2016, has attempted to recover the form that saw him turn into a critical piece of Newcastle’s Premier League side amid his four seasons at St James’ Park.

Be that as it may, that hasn’t halted Karim Benzema, who has played with the winger for France as of late, from lauding his ability.

“Ben Arfa has talent at Messi’s level,” he said via The Mirror. “I am not fooling around. It hurts me to see his current situation at PSG.”

Back in July, Ben Arfa was let well enough alone for the club’s pre-season visit close by midfielder GrzegorzKrychowiak, who in the long run joined West Brom.

As said before, the winger was a fan favorite at Newcastle United yet his opportunity there at last finished on a sharp note when he was discharged in January 2015 after a disappointing loan at Hull City.

He reconstructed his profession back in France with Nice, netting 18 goals in a single season and getting a significant cash move to PSG in July 2016.

In any case, notwithstanding a promising start, Ben Arfa never nailed down a starting spot under Unai Emery.

Maybe a couple can deny Ben Arfa’s gifts on the pitch. He has packs of value, however, besides that excellent season at Nice, he’s attempted to deliver the products on a solid premise, and that is eventually why he’s not possessed the capacity to satisfy his potential thoroughly.
