KARIM BENZEMA could be heading to Arsenal.
The Real Madrid star had a hit-and-miss season under Zinedine Zidane last time out.
Benzema, 29, netted just 11 La Liga goals as Zidane’s men lifted the title ahead of Barcelona.
And according to Spanish transfer outlet Don Balon, the France international could be heading to the Gunners.
They reckon Benzema will head to Arsenal if Alexis Sanchez quits the Emirates.
The Chile international is out of contract at the end of the season and is demanding a bumper pay rise to stay in north London.
Manchester City and Paris St-Germain are keen on the former Barcelona star.
Reports today claimed City are readying a £70m bid to test Arsenal’s resolve.
Pep Guardiola is keen to reunite with Sanchez at the Etihad after the winger impressed him at Barca.
Sanchez would become City’s sixth summer signing, following Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Danilo, Ederson and Bernardo Silva to the Etihad.
Don Balon add that Real’s plan is to replace Benzema with Kylian Mbappe.
