Karim Benzema interested in Arsenal move?

A report claims that Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema would be open to discussing a move to Arsenal this summer.

French forward Karim Benzema is reportedly open to the possibility of leaving Real Madrid for Arsenal this summer.

The Gunners have been strongly linked with a move for the 27-year-old, although as it stands, there has been no official offer from the Emirates.

Benzema has been with Los Blancos since 2009, scoring 133 goals in 281 matches, including 22 in all competitions last season.

However, it is understood that the forward is concerned over his spot in the team next season, with new head coach Rafael Benitez believed to be leaning towards a front two of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

According to El Confidencial, Benzema has not asked to leave Real Madrid, but is open to discussing a move to the Premier League club.

Manchester United are also said to be interested in the former Lyon striker.
