The France international had an average season for the Spanish giants last campaign, netting 17 goals in all competitions.

And according to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, Real president Florentino Perez has ran out of patience with Benzema.
They say the Real chief wants to sell the 29-year-old this summer, with Arsenal keen on the striker.

The Gunners have shown interest in signing Benzema, with Arsene Wenger a big admirer of the Bernabeu star.

Wenger reportedly feels the La Liga man can replace Alexis Sanchez, who continues to be linked with an Arsenal exit.

Sanchez is wanted by Manchester City and Paris St-Germain this summer.

The 28-year-old is demanding a bumper pay rise to stay at the Emirates.

Diario Gol add that Perez wants to replace Benzema with Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe.

Mbappe, 18, had a fine season last time out, guiding Monaco to the Ligue 1 title ahead of PSG.
