Liverpool are reportedly monitoring Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.

According to 4-4-2, the Reds will make their move for the Frenchman if they fail to pull off a deal for Ajax captain Luis Suarez, whose protracted move to Merseyside continues to rumble on.

Benzema – who joined Real from Lyon for £30 million in 2009 – remains on the fringes at the Bernabeu and Liverpool are prepared to offer him a fresh start.


Liverpool have been linked with the 23-year-old for some time and have even been urged to launch a move for his services by former Kop favourite Jamie Redknapp.

“Liverpool need a striker and they should look no further than Karim Benzema," the former Liverpool midfielder wrote in the Daily Mail.

“The new Liverpool owners have their first challenge: sign him.”

Liverpool are known to have identified their attacking department as the most in need of reinforcement during January and have been linked with a number of potential targets.

A deal for Benzema, however, would represent a significant coup for Liverpool and the France international would form a potentially fearsome partnership with Anfield star Fernando Torres.
