Karim Benzema Real Madrid

Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked with Karim Benzema during the past couple of transfer window and now there are subtle hints that the Premier League clubs might go back for him.

Karim Benzema has been the main striker for Real Madrid for a couple of seasons now but now with Cristiano Ronaldo gone, the Frenchman looks a lone figure up front.

Real Madrid have made a very poor start to the new La Liga season and reports have it that Florentino Perez is already planning for an overhaul.

Perez is planning to offload some of the senior pros and bring in fresh talent during the January and summer transfer windows.

And one of the players who could be sold is Karim Benzema.

Real Madrid have reportedly prized Karim Benzema in the bracket of £69 million which makes him accessible to many a clubs in Europe.

And subtle hints are being dropped that Liverpool and Arsenal are closely monitoring the whole situation and will make a move if Madrid wish to offload the 30-year-old.

But the Premier League duo is not the only clubs who are interested in Karim Benzema as some reports suggest that Serie A side AC Milan are also planning to make a move.

AC Milan are reportedly planning to get in touch with Real Madrid at the start of the new year and if the Los Blancos are willing to offload Karim Benzema then Milan might want to sign a pre-contract agreement with the Frenchman.

Liverpool and Arsenal though have no plans of moving for the striker before the end of the season which will surely be a drawback especially if AC Milan contact Real Madrid in January.
