Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid superstar Karim Benzema in the summer.

Benzema, 30, has won two La Liga titles and lifted the Champions League on three occasions since joining Madrid back in 2009 but the striker is being linked with a move away from the Bernabeu at the end of the season.

But while Benzema has struggled this term, only managing nine goals in all competitions, Zinedine Zidane remains committed to keeping hold of his fellow Frenchman.

The report states that Benzemas agent is well aware of Arsenals interest after a number of approaches from Arsene Wenger down the years.

Benzema is tied into a contract until the summer of 2021.

Rather ridiculously, the attacker has a €1bn release clause in his deal at Madrid.
