Real Madrid are open to doing business with Premier League clubs over a potential deal for Karim Benzema, according to reports.

The French striker has been in good form this season, managing nine goals in 17 La Liga encounters so far this season. 


However it seems he could well be on the move in the summer and according to the Daily Star, Real Madrid are open to the idea of selling the former Lyon ace. That has alerted a host of clubs across Europe including the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United.

The paper says that Real Madrid are open to the idea of selling up in the summer when he's at his peak value, which could be around £40 million. 

Manchester United could well make a move for Benzema over the summer if they decide not to make Radamel Falcao's switch to Old Trafford permanent. Edinson Cavani has been mooted as a possible option as well.


If they do let Falcao go it could open up the possibility of a swap deal given Real Madrid's reported interest in the Colombian forward.

Chelsea look light in the forward department - a problem that will be exacerbated if Didier Drogba leaves Stamford Bridge as expected come the summer - while Liverpool could ditch Mario Balotelli this month if reports are to be believed, and Benzema would be an ideal replacement. 

Arsenal have made additions to their front line but Arsene Wenger could be interested in landing his compatriot.
