According to online transfer gossip, Liverpool are set to swoop for one of Real Madrid’s top strikers. Per the source, Liverpool are plotting to beat Arsenal to the signature of Karim Benzema.
Liverpool are on the brink of qualifying for the Champions league next season and they have started planning for a very competitive campaign.
They have been linked with several high profile players, but it is believed that Karim Benzema is the Marquee signing that they want to make.
The Frenchman has won everything in club football at Real Madrid, and it is believed that he now wants to test himself in England.
Playing for Arsene Wenger would have been Benzema’s first choice, but the Gunners are unlikely going to qualify for the Champions League next season, and Benzema will not want to be left out of Europe’s biggest competition for any reason.
Real Madrid have not placed a price tag on Benzema yet, but it is believed that they would be willing to sell for any bid that is £35 Million and above.
It would be interesting to see if Benzema would leave Spain for the Premiership.
