Real Madrid launch bid for Arsenal, Chelsea & Liverpool transfer target as Benzema replacement

Real plot move for league’s best finisher.

Real Madrid could be set to launch a move to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette ahead of big clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool, according to sources in Spain.

The La Liga giants are considering bringing in a replacement for Karim Benzema, who has been strongly linked with Arsenal in recent months and who is said to be unhappy with his situation at the Bernabeu.

Lacazette’s prolific form for Lyon last season could make him an ideal buy if Benzema does move on, and claim Real are considering a swoop for the Frenchman.
