Barcelona are making a shock move for Olympique Lyon striker Karim Benzema.

Encouraged by Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas' claims of interest in Cameroon international Samuel Eto'o, Barca are ready to discuss a swap involving Benzema, says Sport.

Aulas met with Barca officials last week to discuss a price for Eto'o and knows the Spanish giants are keen to open negotiations over a swap for young France international Benzema.
