Reports are out claiming that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is monitoring Karim Benzema’s situation at Real Madrid.
El Confidencial claims that Wenger is plotting a swoop for Benzema – if he is frozen out by new boss Rafael Benitez.
Benzema has impressed since his move to the Bernabeu, but continues to be linked with a move away this summer.
He has scored 20 goals in each of his last five seasons, but Benitez is reportedly planning to use Cristiano Ronaldo as a central striker, which could hamper the Frenchman’s playing time.
Wenger will step in if he feels a deal can be struck.
