Arsenal and Chelsea are keeping tabs on Karim Benzema's situation at Real Madrid. And both clubs will be encouraged after Real coach Carlo Ancelotti admitted he could drop Benzema for this weekend's game with Levante.

He said: "Benzema is the first-choice striker but (Alvaro) Morata might play against Levante.

"Though he hasn't scored, I'm very happy with Benzema."

Benzema is a target for Real boo-boys this season which has sparked talk of a move away in January.
