Real Madrid has already sold Alvaro Morata to Premier League Champions Chelsea, but Calciomercato are quoting a report from Diario Gol that claims Real are also planning to sell Benzema to make room for incoming Mbappe.
The Gunners are named in the report as one of several clubs showing interest in signing Benzema with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger supposedly eyeing the 29-year-old forward as a potential replacement for unsettled Chilean Alexis Sanchez.
