Man City planning to hijack Arsenal's move for £35million-rated star

Manchester City are reportedly considering hijacking Arsenal's move for Real Madrid striker star Karim Benzema, according to Don Balon.

The report claims Pep Guardiola is a big fan of the Frenchman and sees him as a player who could fit in well to leading the line for his side amid doubts over Sergio Aguero's future.

The Argentina international has not been at his best this season doesn’t look assured of a regular starting spot under Guardiola, so it could be that Benzema would make a decent upgrade.

Still, Benzema has not been impressive for the Los Blancos this season, leading to previous reports from Don Balon that the North London club are only willing to offer as much as £35million for him as the reigning European champions struggle to sell in a deal they'd be happy with.

Benzema may just be in need of a new challenge after growing too used in Madrid, and he seems a player who could be a great fit in the Premier League.

He's strong, fast and hard-working, the Frenchman could add a lot to most top sides despite struggling this season to score at the kind of frequency he has in the past.

In total, he has 185 goals across 383 appearances for Real Madrid, and has generally been one of Europe's best strikers for much of the last season.
