Real Madrid are reportedly willing to sell Karim Benzema to Arsenal next year for £44m.

Real Madrid are reportedly open to the idea of selling Karim Benzema to Arsenal, who have been linked to the attacking star for some time.

The Frenchman has made three La Liga appearances this season, providing one assist in the process, but due to injury did not feature in the team's 3-0 win over APOEL in the Champions League last week.

It is believed that club president Florentino Perez is keen to get rid of some of Zinedine Zidane's older players next year, and that includes Benzema, who turns 30 in December.

According to Don Balon, the Spanish outfit are prepared to sell the striker for £44m to Arsenal, who regard the player as an ideal replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

The Chile international, whose proposed move to Manchester City fell through on deadline day, is expected to leave the Emirates when his contract expires at the end of the season.
