Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has been a prime target for Arsenal in recent weeks, and the Gunners are reportedly lining up a £45m bid for the Frenchman.
However, Manchester United are understood to have joined the hunt for the former Lyon man.
Soccerlens reports that former Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has advised the Red Devils to make a move for Benzema.
Redknapp speculated on whether Man United will use goalkeeper David de Gea as a bargaining chip.
“It looks like de Gea is definitely going. Who’s going to come in? Will they try to get someone else coming the other way from Real Madrid, could it be Benzema? It will be interesting to see,” Redknapp said.
The Red Devils shot-stopper is expected to move to Real Madrid, however, the two clubs have yet to agree on a transfer fee.
Man United are refusing to budge until their asking price is met, which makes it possible that Man United will risk losing De Gea on a free transfer next year.
Benzema would be a massive addition for United, are in need of another attacking threat following the departure of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao.
