Paris Saint-Germain want to sign Real Madrid's Karim Benzema this summer as Edinson Cavani prepares to depart, according to a report.

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly weighing up a summer move for Real Madrid's Karim Benzema.

The French champions are expected to be in the market for a new centre-forward ahead of the 2020-21 campaign as the club's all-time leading goalscorer Edinson Cavani prepares to leave on a free transfer.

On-loan Mauro Icardi is also unlikely to stay with Thomas Tuchel's side, meaning that the capital giants are likely to target a new striker during this summer's transfer window.

According to Mundo Deportivo, PSG have identified Benzema as the perfect player to operate alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the final third of the field.

The 32-year-old has again been in impressive scoring form for Madrid during the 2019-20 campaign, netting 19 times in 36 appearances in all competitions, including four in the Champions League.

Benzema's current deal at the Bernabeu will expire in the summer of 2022.
