Monaco could move for Benzema with the money they receive from PSG for Kylian Mbappe

Benzema has been in awful form for Los Blancos so far this campaign, with the former Lyon hitman only managing to clock up a total of nine goals in 37 appearances in all competitions.

The Frenchman has seriously struggled these last two seasons, with the player bagging a measly total of 27 goals in 85 appearances, a shocking record for a player of his quality.

Following this baron run from the Real Madrid star, it’ll be interesting to see how much Monaco deem the player to be worth should they end up making a move for him in the summer.

Should things go to plan, we may see Monaco rival the Gunners in the race to secure a deal for Benzema in the near future.
