According to the Daily Star, the Reds are on alert for the £40m-rated French international, who is also attracting interest from Paris Saint-Germain after an inconsistent season.

Benzema did grab a superb assist for Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2-1 loss at the Nou Camp, but remains a divisive figure among the club’s fans, and one who could leave to make way for a new Galactico signing.

Liverpool still look short upfront after losing Luis Suarez last summer, and Benzema may now leave Real to replace Barcelona’s matchwinner at Anfield.
