The Spanish giants are looking to make some changes to their squad this summer, and have already parted company with manager Carlo Ancelotti after a disappointing season that ended trophyless.

New defensive signings could be on the club’s agenda, with Koscielny seemingly the player Real would want to bring in from Arsenal if they come calling for Benzema.

The French centre-back has had another solid campaign in north London, helping Arsene Wenger’s side to a second FA Cup triumph in a row and to third in the Premier League.

After years of proving himself to be one of the top defenders in the English top flight, Koscielny may now have earned himself a big move to the Bernabeu this summer, as long as Arsenal continue to track Benzema up front, according to the Metro.
