Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema is the man Arsene Wenger wants to replace Alexis Sanchez if the Chilean leaves Arsenal in the coming weeks, a report claims.

Arsenal have reportedly eyed up a move for Real Madrid ace Karim Benzema as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez if the wantaway forward gets his wish and leaves this summer.

The Chile international's future remains uncertain with five weeks of the transfer window left to run after entering the final 12 months of his Emirates Stadium contract.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has repeatedly made it clear that he has no intention of cashing in on the 28-year-old, who boasts Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City among his rumoured suitors.

Sanchez may force an exit from North London in an attempt to ply his trade in the Champions League next season, however, with both PSG and City expected to table formal bids before the market shuts for business.

Spanish outlet Don Balon suggests that Benzema is Wenger's top target to replace Sanchez should that be the case, and the Frenchman is prepared to spend big to get his man.

Arsenal have so far brought in one big-name player this summer, landing Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon for a club-record fee of £46.5m.
