Arsenal and Liverpool are monitoring Karim Benzema's situation at Real Madrid after reports revealed that Carlo Ancelotti is ready to replace his striker with Bayern Munich man Thomas Muller.
This has been reported by the Express, who have suggested that Manchester United are also interested in the player's services ahead of a big-money move next summer.
Manchester United interest
United, who look set to spend as much as £150 million in 2015, were seemingly favourites to land the French international, however it now appears that they will have to battle their Premier League rivals as they look to bring the player to England's elite division.
The trio of Premier League clubs may also have to go head-to-head with French duo Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco in the race to land the striker's signature.
There's no doubt about it, Benzema would prove quite the coup for the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Co., but it remains to be seen as to whether they will step up their interest in him in the near future.

The striker has enjoyed a fine season under Ancelotti so far this term after netting 13 goals in all competitions, but it appears that his time at the Spanish giants is coming to an end.
It will certainly be interesting to see how Benzema's situation in Madrid develops over the coming months, whilst it seems extremely likely that the duo of Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger will watch proceedings extremely closely.
