Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will be encouraged by Karim Benzema's deteriorating situation at Real Madrid. Wenger is in the market for a new striker signing this January and is a big fan of Benzema.

Marca reports Benzema was "booed and whistled" by the home crowd during victory over Getafe and appeared "destroyed" when he was substituted by coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Many Madrid pundits see no way back with Real fans for the France international, who is likely to welcome an escape route to London if Wenger was to come calling.
