Arsenal are one of three top European clubs keeping tabs on Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema.

That’s according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, who claim that Arsenal, along with Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, are planning to move for the French international at the earliest opportunity.

That may not be until the summer of 2016 though, as PSG are not looking to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic until the Swedish international decides to call time on his career.

Arsenal and Juventus meanwhile have more pressing concerns, and speculation has surrounded Benzema in recent months.

A goal drought to end last season led to rumours that Real Madrid would look to move him on to the highest bidder at the end of the season.

It had even been suggested that Florentino Perez was keen on Luis Suarez over the summer and was prepared to offload Benzema to bring the Uruguayan international to the Bernabeu.

Benzema stayed put

In the end, Suarez moved to rivals Barcelona and Benzema stayed put - and it’s proved to be a good decision. The former-Lyon forward has six La Liga goals in nine games for Real Madrid this season already.

He’s committed to Real Madrid and wants to stay long-term, but things move fast in the Spanish capital, and Juventus, Arsenal and PSG are the three frontrunners at this stage should he become available next summer.
