Real Madrid have dealt Liverpool are a harsh blow, with the La Liga giants reportedly keen on finalising a deal for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus.
Reus has been linked with a move to Anfield this summer, however, Daily Express reports the Los Blancos are keen on a deal for the 26-year-old German international.
The report claims the former Borussia Monchengladbach man could become available for a staggering £63m, and the La Liga giants’ chase for the player will come as good news for Premier League side Arsenal.
Daily Express reports Real Madrid are now keen to sell Karim Benzema to the Gunners to fund a deal for Reus.
Arsenal are believed to have submitted a £31.1m offer for the French international this week, but may have to wait until Madrid close out a deal for Reus.
The Gunners have been linked with a big-money move for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, and Lord Harris has told The Daily Mail that the club has over £200m in the bank ready to spend.
