Liverpool transfer news
With Real keen to re-sign Alvaro Morata from Juventus, it looks as though Benzema could be the player to make way upfront, if a good enough bid comes in for him.
Liverpool have long been linked with the former Lyon star, who has been one of the best strikers in the world for many years and would make an ideal replacement for Luis Suarez.
