Arsenal’s push for some much needed additional firepower may well be aided by Real Madrid’s continued interest in Liverpool ace Luiz Suarez according to Football Direct News.

The Bernabeu side’s very real interest in the 27 year old Uruguayan could pave the way for a Gunners move for long term target Karim Benzema.

Emirates Stadium boss Arsene Wenger has long been linked with an interest in Benzema, dating back to his Lyon days, and should Real Madrid succeed in their push for Suarez then the French international is likely to leave the Spanish giants.

Carlo Ancelotti has used Benzema regularly, indeed no outfield player has featured more for the Italian this term, and the forward has rewarded that loyalty with 23 goals in all competitions.

However Benzema will not take well to the possible arrival of Suarez and would certainly look for a new challenge and a move to the Premier League may well be one that tempts the 26 year old.

The marksman has just over a year to run on his current deal and is no doubt biding his time in relation to penning a new deal as he looks to see whom Real Madrid target at the end of the season.

Wenger could well do with the addition of a prolific forward as he has overworked Olivier Giroud this term, who has been fairly hit and miss, whilst Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski have both struggled with injuries this season.
